The Adventure (Poem)

The Adventure

If you asked me to define love
I wouldn’t have an answer.
Does it mean you love me back?
Or did my words frighten you?
I don’t need to hear it.
    I’m scared too,
that’s why my shoulder shook
and my heart capsized
my chest filled with smoke
and I was up before sunrise
    without sleep,
To ponder if I phrased it right
and when the sun came up
morning light filled my room
your brown eyes met mine
    I felt your warmth
            and I knew.
