Two Loves

Sometimes a word just hangs there
Like an email drifting in cyberspace
Or the moment after a missile launches
A choice yet to be consequenced

Other times it’s too sudden
Like the moment the bacon hits the oil
A match igniting into life
They cannot be controlled quickly enough

One word alone can spark the two reactions simultaneously
‘I love you’ he says
My stomach drops, this is it
But I’m not ready to drop the ‘L’ bomb myself
‘I…love you too’
The words were said immediately
But the pause spoke volumes

The words both hung and fell.
