I waited for you.

I waited for other girls to pass through your life
to stop gloating about the flowers you send
to bore you.

I waited for all of our morning coffees
our afternoon laughter
our midnight conversations

to evolve into something
or someone
you recognized.

I waited for the right interlude

to lean in and kiss you
to lean in and assert my place beside you
to lean in
and feel you recognize

that I was different
that we could be different.

I waited.

And we were worth it.
