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.
