                 never will I forget 
              your assuaging earful 
          a pocketful of moons ago;
      merely four words that quelled 
 a storm of anxiety raging within me.
               so terrifying, you see,
       when they're held in abeyance,
             a torture among tortures 
     when kept in suspense with them.

          i recall telling you I loved you 
                in the hush of nightfall 
                       bracing myself 
                          for perhaps 
                  an awkward silence; 
        a gale-force wind that would've 
            blown down the foundation 
of my painstakingly constructed dreams.
           i had an inkling your feelings 
                         mirrored mine,

             but I just had to be sure! 
              when I heard you reply... 
                      "I love you, too," 
                     i finally released 
                my suspended breath 
           as my heart sung hallelujah! 
                     i couldn't describe 
            how good that moment felt 
                             if I tried.
                  i could breathe again.

                my joy knew no bounds!
                the kingdom of heaven 
                      came crumbling 
                     down to the Earth, 
                  falling atop my head 
                           like confetti.
          my spirits floated on cloud nine 
   when I knew you loved me just as much.
                       i still am elevated.

What exultation after a moment of escalating tension. I can relate to your feeling, though I haven't experienced it myself. I see in my mind's eye, you levitating from the ground and floating in cloud nine! Beautiful poem, dear Edward. All the Best.

This is absolutely stunning and soul warming, i can feel the excitement and the butterflies , and how one floats when in love so well depicted. So many lines caught my eyes, especially “ pocketful of moons ago” “ i had an inkling your feelings mirrored mine” ahh! And those last lines, i saw almost confettis and all that, a magical moment youve described! Love this. Goodluck for the contest

This is such a divine, romantic poem Edward. ‘A pocketful of moons ago’- what a gorgeous description! You capture the desired, so waited for, moments so well of having your love returned to you when you heard the three most important words of all. So lovely! I love happy endings. Enjoyed reading this delightful heartfelt poem. Good luck in the contest! :)
