Knowledge

I know your sister hates me.

I know you’re optimistic.

I know your boyfriend loves you

and I know you love him too,

but for a minute I knew your hands.

For two seconds I knew your eyes,

blue enough to show the future,

and for five years I’ve known agony,

from wanting to die to wanting to

marry you.

Discord aside,

I know I still love you.
