let's fall in love pt.3

i want to kiss you under this tree

or that one

or that one

or that one over on the far side of the hill,
the cute-looking one by the stone wall is okay, too

doesn't matter to me, honestly
all trees are good

it's premature, but i can wait it through
i'm not in a rush, really
trees take years and years to grow
they grow in the cold, in the rain, in the snow
in seasons of sentimentality and often in spite of drought
and still have purpose when they're cut down.

so i can wait

i've thought about it, though
thought about kissing you under that tree.
thought it was something worth mentioning.
