I Never Fell In Love With You

I Never Fell In Love With You prose poem

Photo by Caden Crawford

I never fell in love with you
Not even the first time I asked if you wanted to see a movie
And you looked up at me with that smile and said,
“Are you asking me on a date?”
And I barely muttered out the three letter word that changed our lives
Yes
I never fell in love with you
Not even after the first movie, or the second movie
Not even after the third movie while you were there
Laying in my arms light as a feather while butterflies bombarded my stomach
I never fell in love with you
Not even when I nervously muttered out an incoherent sentence that ended in
Girlfriend?
And you looked up at me with that perfect smile
And squealed out that three letter word that changed our lives
Yes
I swear that I never did fall in love with you
Even when we went on our picnic dates or held hands while staring up at the stars
The very stars that paled in comparison to your bright blue eyes
I never fell in love with you
Even when you kissed me like our faces had their own gravitational pull
Or like I was going off to war and we both knew I wasn’t coming back
Or like our lips were our only source of oxygen
And baby we just needed to breathe
I never fell in love with you
I never fell in love with
The way you looked when we watched the sunrise from your roof
Or the way you smiled as if there was never anything to frown about
Or the smile that you put on my face
Because you made me forget there was anything to frown about
I never fell in love with you
So when you showed up to my house on that rainy afternoon
And your eyes become dark and your smile was gone
And I asked if you were breaking up with me
And you whispered that three letter word that changed our lives
Yes
I had never fallen in love with you
Not once
I never fell in love with you
Because baby, we were flying
But now I’m falling
As I watch you
Fly for another man

An Love Agony At 10:30 short poem

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted
