Perhaps you didn’t hear me well enough

When I spoke the words ‘I love you’

They don’t mean ‘I want something from you’

The words mean to me

That I am yours.. Completely

Every sentence I speak and step I take

Are always in the direction of you.

When I say ‘I am yours’

It means there is nobody on this planet

That will even get me to look

In their direction.

It means that my body is yours

My mind is yours

My heart is yours

With absolutely no hesitation.


Yet when you walk away from me

You tell me you are done with me

Maybe you didn’t understand what I said

When I told you ‘goodbye.’


When I tell you ‘I love you’

It means every day I think of you

And regret giving my heart

To such recklessness.
