He Loves You

He Loves You By Zarinah Alarcon

 

When he

Retweets your tweets on twitter

Likes your pictures on instagram

And reads your story on Snapchat

That’s when you know he loves you.

 

When he

Writes you back each time you write to him

Loves when you dress classy and not flashy

And reads the Bible with you daily

That’s when you know he loves you

 

When he

forces his mouth onto yours

Sneaks into your house late at night

And uses your body after he’s had a bad day

That’s when you know he loves you

 

When he

Remains gentle even though he’s angry

Asks your parents to allow a first date

And waits until marriage before asking for sexual relations

That’s when you know he loves you

 

You decide how you want to be loved.
