The Things I Know

I know the state capital of Florida
I know twenty different kinds of dinosaurs
I know that Jupiter is made of gas

I know that you can’t hold your breath for more than three minutes.
I know that the sky is blue only to humans
I know why you should never give orchids as a gift

I know that dogs are loyal
I know how to hold babies
I know why you should always bring a handkerchief

I know why you were crying that day
I know why your smile is beautiful
I know why I get lost in your eyes

I know that I shouldn’t have fallen in love with you
I don’t know how to stop
I don’t know how I can forget
