I don't wait for you
to say you love me
It isn't something
I question now.

I used to -
wait and question you -
because I thought
when you said
those words
the earth would somehow
move and shake
in a way it never had before.

Then, when you
finally said
those three hard
but simple words,
nothing changed.

My heartbeat did not skip,
my mind was not blown,
and the earth did not stand still.

We continued on
like you simply said
"Hello" or "Goodbye",
just another word
like any other.

But you didn't.
You said the three words
I'd waited over a decade
to hear.
And now I know
this has not been in vain,
and that I am no alone.
