I’m so nervous right now
My heart is racing
I may never get the nerve to do this again
So, I’m just going to…I’m just going to say it.
I love you
Not just as the friend
But as the lover.
I’m risking a lot by saying this
Out loud, in front of you
That’s a risk that I’ve been willing to take
For a long time.
And if you don’t feel the same, that’s okay
No for real, it’s okay.
We’re always honest with each other
And I couldn’t keep this in anymore
So there it is.
One syllable each
Lingering in the air.
