when we first knew of each other,
it was not amorous
it was prickly

there was ego
i was studying thee..ear..tar
you were IN thee..ear..tar

i can laugh now
at the time i could not
i favoured flying solo
i gobbled romance like ice cream

when you said
“we should get married”
I said “yes we should”

we had only been together for six days
we had only fooled around once
we had only talked about everything
we had only known one thing for sure

that we knew nothing at all

now after all these years and days and seconds
i just wanted to mention again
the old cliche that spins the earth 
and keeps gravity real

i love you

PS - I learnt today that the word verisimilitude means truth. 
Although, I'm sure if I used it in everyday conversation no one would believe me.

This is a wonderfully romantic post. And we should all take the time and trouble to say 'I love you' more often.
