"I Like You"

A Realization

"I Like You"

I can't say that.

Even though you want me to.

Even though sometimes I want to.

But isn't this what it feels like?

How it's supposed to feel?

I sound crazy.

There's power in those words.

Too much.

Still, I can't think of any other way to describe this feeling in my chest...

I can't.

This is a test.

I'm through being young and dumb.

Those words are a time bomb.

Before we know it we'll both be dust.

I like you a lot though.

- m.w.
