The Five Characteristics

You leave the house

And I do not worry

Where you’re going.

Trust.

 

I’m not comfortable with

Your hand trailing my thigh.

You stop.

Respect.

 

I can’t speak

When you look into my eyes.

I’m star struck.

Infatuation.

 

My smile has never been

As wide

As when I’m with you.

Happiness.

 

We fight.

You leave.

I wait.

Patience.

 

You come back.

We cry.

We forgive.

Love.
