No matter how high you are, you always have to come back down.

Foot steps in motion, 
Getting slower and slower. 
Voices in the halls, 
Getting lower and lower. 

The second hand freezes
Between one and two. 
Eye contact is met
Between me and you. 

My heart drops to the floor, 
And it's the only thing I hear. 
Can you hear it? 
It's crystal clear. 

It whispers only three words, 
And you don't have a clue. 
The words it whispers
Are: I love you.

Oh my goodness! So short but so heartbreakingly beautiful! This made me flash back to the first time I spoke those three words... Thank you for that. 5/5 and in my favs!
