The first time she said,

“I love you”

I smiled because

I thought,  

she didn’t mean it

The first time she said,

“I love you”

My legs trembled like the wings

of a sick honeybee

And I shivered like a child stuck

in a sturdy and unfortunate summer rain.

But I even felt like a superman

For I felt that I could

levitate like a bird

Which had just got wings

Trust me gravity felt

like as if it

was nothing.

The first time she said,

“I love you”,

I felt very confident

For I could walk on the streets

on my way back home

like a lion in a forest of his own

Swinging my hands around my home

At night while wandering

Still dreaming of my love

I felt the moonlight falling straight on my heart.

I felt like as if the street lights on my road

Were showering light

to brighten up

those imaginary picture

I posed for with her

Wandering deep inside

our elegant universe

The first time she said,

“I love you”

I just couldn’t sleep

I spent my whole night pondering

About her and I couldn’t help but

open my phone to watch her photos

scrolling one by one with her grin

Which makes my thoughts disappear

When we’re together

I scrambled in living room

Lying on the couch

I pretended the pillow was her hands

and I held it tight to my chest

till dawn called

And yes I did miss her

The first time she said,

“I love you”

I cried for I couldn’t believe it

I pretended to hide it

but just couldn’t  do that

With tears smeared

all over my cheeks

I felt like I was her answer

The first time she said,

“I love you”

I kissed my mother

Maybe that was a thing

I have never did before

She wondered if I had gone crazy

And I told her “this is love”

But I guess she knew it before

The first time she said,

“I love you”

I saw what love looks like

I tasted the smell of heaven

I felt like I dancēd in paradise with her

And the first time she said,

“I love you”

I wrote this poem……
