POEM: I LOVE YOU, I THINK I LOVE YOU

I think when he tells you he loves you

And he’s not sure if he does

You can feel it

In-between the air

Of his tongue

And

Your lips

That might return a reply

Of

I love you too

Gets foggy.

There comes a point in a relationship when those three words, I love you, sit on the horizon and it can be complicated and challenging.  Sometimes we fear hearing it when we’re not sure if we feel the same way. Sometimes we fear saying it when we’re not sure if it will be returned.  No matter what side of those three words you stand by, it can cause anxiety, stress, fear, and uncertainty.

Don’t say it if you’re not sure.  Don’t reciprocate it if you’re not sure. Stay true to yourself, and to your partner. Like, I said, no matter what side of the fence you sit on, the honest side is the best way to go.
