That One

They say that you’re too young to know
but you do
you know that he might not be ‘the one’
like they talk about
in those five dollar romance novels
and
maybe he doesn’t give you
butterflies
in your stomach or lumps
in your throat.

But what you can say
with absolute certainty
is that he is the one
who clicks his pen
in and out and
in and out and
in
and
out
every time he gets bored.

He is the one
who raises his eyebrows
and purses his lips
when he doesn’t understand something
and
he is the one
who makes you laugh
without even saying anything funny.

He is the one
with the sweet smile
that crinkles his eyes up
and he is the one
with the laugh
that shakes his shoulders.

He is that one
and that is enough.
