{May 2, 2013}   It’s A Given

I think you heard me crying behind my laughter

but you gave me a pass anyway and we soaked in those last few seconds

knowing they have to last a little longer than we’d like

it’s funny, the way we wait and wait and still smile hard ’cause damn is it ever worth the waiting

we hate all those clichés, they weren’t made for us we say, then we hide those ‘I was born to love you’s’ in a little box underneath our separate pillows and dream the perfect order of things

we don’t talk much about it, you and I, we don’t always say those things we mean because that would be like saying the sky is nearly as blue as your eyes

it’s a given

and so are we
