One Day


















One day,
I said I love you,
the words falling from my lips
like feathered pieces of my heart
coming to rest at your feet.

You gathered up the fragments
and held them for an eternity,
or so it seemed to me. Three words,
weighted and frightening,
magical and full of promise.

You believed they weren't meant
for you to keep, you tried to give them back
but they don't belong to me,
my lips refuse them
you own them now.

One day,
I said I love you.
