48 Seconds

She is so fucking gorgeous
And that is the least interesting thing about her.

I never wanted to fall in love with her
All I ever wanted to do was understand her;
But it was in exploring that I found her soul
And I am convinced that anyone would fall for such beauty.

I had never written an honest love poem
Until I heard her sob
From my stage
And I felt my heart tear in my ribcage
And suddenly
For the first time
The words came pouring out
In buckets.

I held my breath for the entire 48 seconds that it took her
To look at me after we kissed
On that escalator
In the airport
And when she finally did
I saw stars in her eyes for the first time.
