Editing

It’s difficult to tell
Somebody you love them 
When you’re unsure 
Of how they feel about you.
It makes your hands shake,
Adrenaline pounding your heart
Like a drum.
Regardless of the answer 
The relief afterwards
Is a prize in itself.
You’ve formed these sentences
In your head for weeks,
Edited and re-edited
To the standard 
Of best-selling literature,
And now it’s done.
All of the nerves
And the waiting
All leading up to
The worst case scenario:
‘Thank you. I think
You’re a wonderful person
But….’
