People fall in love
Love! Splendid like the stars above.
I did too.
Same old story, nothing new.
Not with the sonnets you wrote,
but with the way you uttered my name.
Not with the way you look,
but with your choice of favorite book.
Not the times you made promises,
but the times you handled my vices.
Not with your alluring charm,
but the way you made my heart feel warm.
Not the way you showed your care,
but the way you brushed aside locks of my hair.
Not with the big gestures you made,
but with the little things, said and unsaid.
I fell in love because of the electricity,
I stayed there because of your simplicity.
