408 (who?)
I don't want to say "I love you",
Because my words will make it real
Make my love for you actual
Palpable and ,worst of all, breakable.
My love would manifest itself
Like a sheet of glass between us
That you could shatter with
The slightest touch.
I don't want to say "I love you",
Because those words don't show
The truth to you
They don't show how important
You truly are to me
That I want to wake up every day
And fall asleep every night
With you by my side .
I don't want to say "I love you",
Because you might return
the same words to me.
And we would love together
Our hearts growing as one
But tragedy might strike
And you might be taken from me
Leaving me with half a heart
And no one say those three words to.
I don't want to say "I love you"
Because I do
I love you more than life itself
And that scares me.
But I'll say it
Because no matter how large my fears
Or small my worries
I want you to know
That "I love you".
This piece is stupid. I can't truly understand these feelings (i barely have a girlfriend right now) so i used the barest of my own understanding to create this piece and truthfully I think its crap but perhaps someone might like.

Ay you're giving me chills! I'm loving what I'm reading so far! It's funny because I have yet to post any's hard enough to display my photography. So shy. lol. I'm not sure I have anything so beautifully written...but you're steeling my courage a bit more. Thank you.

Wow! This is beautiful.  Even though you say you don't actually understand that kind of feeling, it's still reads as amazing and heartfelt, the same way it would if it was real.  I just wanted to say great job! : )

This is so beautiful! I don't think this is stupid at all. Love is a very powerful and complicated force to try to explain or express but you really showed those emotions here very well. The uncertainty and fear of the future for that love if it turns badly, hope and vulnerability for being so in love. You have a really lovely style of writing and are very, very talented. Keep up the great work

Omg!!! These words, when I read them each and every one was very precious and I'm speechless along with being numb.
The feeling was so recognizable !
So I loved this poem even more ! ^^
