, , ,

You asked me if they were
happy tears and I told you
I was terribly happy and
terribly scared at the same time
and you asked me where
my love was coming from, and I
didn’t ask you what you meant,
I only said it was made of
all the cups of coffee I abused
all the cloud formations
that awed me
all the trees I knew intimately
all the prayers I uttered
all the times I woke up
in the middle of the night
and checked for messages
from you
all the times I failed in love
all the math equations
all that has ever been erased
and rewritten

and I think you believed me.
Say you believe me.
