Love, Or Something More


Seriousness

Perhaps it was not love
Is that why you never saw the seriousness
in my eyes trailing in your wake,
like wispy clouds drifting across an azure sky

Everyone else did

Is that why you never heard
my heart beat louder
than the thunder crashing through the sky
when you were near

Everyone else did

Is that why you never noticed
the breathlessness of a hot, still summer’s day
in my voice when I dared
to speak to you

Everyone else did

Perhaps it was not love.
Perhaps it was more
But whatever it was, still is
