perplexed

He said I love you
I adore you
my mouth was shut
my eyes pleaded for him to shut up
I don’t know how to say it back
I’ve loved you for so long
I’ve forgotten how it felt
I’ve neglected our promise of forever
but I promise it wasn’t on purpose

He expected a reply
waiting for my mouth to shape words
but there I was
perplexed
I’ve forgotten how to say it
I don’t know how to say it back
