​Would you believe if I just said ‘I love you’?

For the phrase gets thrown around so much

Would it truly reflect my feelings for you?

Or would it remind you of someone who said the same

Without meaning a fucking word

Leaving you alone in the end

Breathless, powerless, a piping-hot mess?

Would you then think of me as a bird of the same feather?

One who likes to play

And doesn’t care whether

The other knows better, or craves attachment

Would you then go defensive

And refuse to have faith?

For ‘I love you’ means nothing now

It’s just another phrase.
