I fell in love with you when you asked me a question

I fell inlove with the spaces between each word you breathed

I fell in love with how nervous you were


then laugh


Then you shook your head at yourself

probably thinking

"How did we get here"

From me hearing a stranger across the room

to us tasting laughter in each kiss

I fell in love when you blurted "I love you"

on the very day you nervously asked me to be your girlfriend

and I remember how you kissed me in the car waiting in a parking lot


then laugh


I fell in love with you when you spit the mint candy out of the car window

After I told you I thought it tasted too strong

I fell in love with you when I leaned against you and breathed in.

I fell in love.
