I Love You Too

my hands are sh-a-ki-ng...
as I read the words in front of me
a heart r-ac-ing
faster than lightening
lines around my eyes tightening
as I fixed them upon these precious words you sent to me
wishing that my heart was as free
as yours
filled with the courage of a lion
instead of these reminders of my past sin
I sit w-ai-ting
what to say back to you
out of fear as my face glows
from the truth on this screen
inside I want to scream
these words I do
Babe, I. love. you. too.
