The three lettered word
I had hardly hoped to hear
Was uttered from your lips
Quietly
Softly
And sheepishly
The world seemed to
Expand and deflate at once
A long deeply held breath
That I never knew I was holding
Released in a single moment
You hid away
Behind your bag
Red and embarrassed
But smiling nonetheless
So numb I was
I barely felt myself
Smiling with you too
