why is it that i doubt your love?
you used to tell me you wanted to
marry me one day.
you used to tell me how beautiful i am
and how happy and lucky you are to have
but you don’t say these things anymore.
you assure me you love me
but the words do not mean anything
unless you put meaning into them.
the one word answers make me feel as if
you are pushing me away,
as if you are losing that initial attraction.
but, maybe i am overthinking it
the “i love you’s” could have meaning
they could have your heart in them.
asking me to hang out with you
asking me for my company,
just because you enjoy feeling my heart beat
against your chest. against your hand.
the kisses and actions could show
what only words did before.
you could see the world in my eyes
just as i see the world in yours.
your smile could be genuine along with the kisses and concerns.
your silly faces and your hummingbird kisses
could be a side of you only i
get to see.
your love for me, may be as real as
the love i have for you.
but, maybe i am overthinking that also.
