I love you

Words flow out of my mouth

Like a waterfall

In the spring

Always in Abundance

As water droplets of stories

But when I looked right at him

I could feel the waterfall recede

And choke my throat

My tongue took refuge underneath my lower teeth

As if they were both conflicted

If those words should ever flow out

I cleared my throat

And fumbled with meaningless conversations

Until my brain and my heart

Asked me to throw it up

And I said “I like you”

“I like like you”, I blurted out

And my feet began to sprint

Out of his sight

God knows for how long we ran

Me, and my mouth

Before it took a deep breath

And then,  it slowly whispered

“I love you”
