Enough

If you look close enough,

Long enough,

You’ll catch the little things.

The way she smiles,

The way she teases,

The way she scratches at her nose

Periodically,

Evenly,

Habitually

 

If you listen hard enough,

Long enough,

You’ll catch the little things

The way she speaks,

The way she laughs

The way her accent ebbs and flows

Lyrically,

Elegantly,

Intriguingly

 

But what if it’s more than enough?

Too long,

And she catches the little things

The way you smile,

The way you tease,

The way you pay too much attention

Dangerously,

Affectionately,

Lovingly

 

And now you’ve revealed too much

Too strong,

And she caught the big thing

The way you feel,

The way you love,

The way your emotions rule you

Constantly,

Unrelentingly,

Uncomfortably
