feeling mushy

overheard:

when you say “I love you” it feels like you are forcing me to say it back.

it doesn’t work that way. you wait. you wait for it, nurture the moment, feel my heart, hear it tattoo your name on my chest. just — just don’t whine out a limp i love you and expect to hear me say it in the same tone as yours.

if i do say it, it will be because i was swept by your presence, your very nearness has intoxicated me, and i want — i want the whole world to know, to hear, that it is you that i love. the wind will carry my message, to the clouds, to the earth, to the seas… and all of creation will know that i love you.
