and he tells you he loves you,
a simple slip of tongue, accident or not:
he tells you he loves you.

you can then realize how monumental it is,
how changed you feel, in a small
but catastrophic way.

now when you think of him,
you question how someone so
wonderful could be attached to
someone so unpure.

his dedication shouldn't be wasted
on a flight risk, but whenever you
imagine him leaving it causes
a physical ache.
