and when youve said everything.
when every single thing you have ever wanted to say
has finally been said and uttered and spoken and spat
when your reservoir of vocabulary has been spent
when it has been cleaned out and every word has been used
when there is not a single word left inside
when there is not even a thought of a word
that is when.
THAT is when you will realize
you will finally realize that i was waiting
ive been waiting, all this time, for you
for you to say everything you wanted to say.
and to say it to me. by yourself. without my help.
and youll know.
that i knew.
(even though you thought i didnt)
and youll be sure.
that i loved you.
(even if you werent sure i did)
and youll understand.
that i understood.
(even though you were convinced i couldnt)
i didnt choose to love you.
and none of your faults
none of your scars and imperfections
cracks and tears and bruises
patches, glued and taped up pieces
NONE OF THEM
can make me love you less.
