sometimes i look at you and feel paralyzed; struck down by the thought that whispers of i love you seem so small. how can three little words express the entirety of how i feel about you? i try to come up with something sweet, something romantic, calling upon all the books I’ve read and all the movies I’ve seen, but every time i try to use someone else’s lines, i stop. i can’t bring myself to utter the words. you and i are too special for secondhand expressions of love. so all i do is smile at you and think: you have me - completely.
