Negation 

Tell me you’re not in love with her,
When you suppressed that smile upon a mention of her name
The way you look at her when you think no one else is looking
The way she makes you laugh like nobody else.

Tell me you’re not in love with her,
When you hold her stare like it’s a tiny fragile thing
The way you tease her and satisfy yourself with her gentle beating
The way you touched her—careful, longing and afraid.

Tell me you’re not in love with her,
When you try so hard to tell her more but ended up saying less
The way you talked about her and being unable to stop grinning
The way you care for her without realizing it.

How dare you tell her you’re not in love with her,
When it is obvious that you are
The way the look of your eyes changed when she believed you
The way you deny it upon yourself is admitting it to be true.
