Do you really want to know?

"When did you know you were in love with me?"

by wethedreamers

Whenever did I love you? I count the fraction of a second

The flicker of an eye that sent out the call to beckon

Twinkling and glittering - light in a dark and dusty room

"When I saw you, I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew."

The tangled cords inside me all uncoiled and my shadow now relaxes

From the shift within your body that turned the globe upon its axis

In the universe where my chin is now directly pointed skyward

Expectations and esteem is now somewhat slightly higher

And sleeping is for rest now, not for just passing time

Excited to be awake as your warmth creeps up my side

Turning pages slowly, getting distracted by distractions

Waving you away with all of your lovely, silly actions

Like I'm riding in the car, deeply lost inside my head

Catatonic, staring blankly, missing every word you said

So, you abruptly yank the wheel so our direction goes west

Driving ever so wildly, all the while, humming in jest

And we reach the mouth of the great river Thames

I know I love you now, but my God, I loved you then

How the water sloshed, like a mesmerizing dream

However did you know that it was exactly what I need?

Whenever did I love you? ...I'll just keep it to myself.

But from the instant that I met you... I hoped that you could tell.
