I Love You

Why did I say that?
That was so stupid,
I feel so pathetic.
I can't believe I said it.

I thought the moment was right,
Sitting there, looking up at the night.
He put his hands around my waist,
The only sense I had left was my taste.

I held my head high,
Knowing I was one of few.
I waited to say those words,
those demons, my foes.

Girls I knew tossed the words around with no concern.
I guess now it's my turn,
but with the concern
That is a burn in my heart.

I feel my face turn red,
I feel the truth come out.
Will he doubt?
Will he think our time dead?

Why did I say that?
Why do I feel it?
It sounds so dramatic,
but to me it's automatic.

I thought the moment was right,
Sitting there, looking up at the night.
Only us two,
I said I love you.
