Favorite Quote:
"We held our peace until it burnt holes in our pockets"


nervously scribbling down words her lips would stutter, she thinks about

the note exploding when it touches his skin; creating a climax of spontaneous combustion

in her anxious mind

her hands shaking as she folds the paper, she feels

like her words are written on the black board; projecting them for everyone to judge

that she’s crazy enough to believe she’s in love

giving up, his eyes meet hers and she imagines, his lips parting

and silently speaking volumes when she closes her eyes:

he tells her, “I love you"
