I Love You Too

I love you-

Those were the words you used,

floating despite their weight,

and I couldn’t help but think

of every disappointment I’d ever faced,

my mind flashed to every time

I had gotten my hopes up,

I remembered every person

who tore my heart apart,

I thought of each time I hid

the nights I cried myself to sleep,

and somewhere in the midst

of that maelstrom of memories,

I looked into your hazel hues,

and oh sweetheart,

I began to believe in you.
