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.
