i knew you as a friend;
a simple acquaintance, love.
you always had my attention,
it's true.
but i still remember
the instant i fell for you.
it was slow and sudden.
gradually, then all at once.
and i wished upon every shooting star
that you would fall too.
but then i realized,
i play this game too.
we are close, then far apart.
i tell you things you should never hear,
and the words from your lips caress my ear.
and then there's silence, and stillness.
and wonder.
at first, i hated it.
but now, i love your poker face.
and, love,
you are the master at building
a n t i c i p a t i o n . 

things that we must wait for,
are always more valuable.
just don't make me wait forever, love.
