And I, you.
I don't know, if anything can ever convince you,
make you believe, what I keep telling you.
But, I know I won't stop saying it, too.
The three simple words; I love you.
If it were a possibility,
if there was a slight chance that,
the heart was made of words that sat,
screaming to be heard, but without a voice.
If the heartbeat was actually morse
and it was communicating words,
that we haven't thought of giving an ear to,
maybe, what I'm about to say is what my heart wants.
The words that my heart holds,
might not be of great might or made of gold.
But, I'm sure, you'd like to listen to them,
speaking to you with all the words, I've learned.
On the surface, the most you'd see is;
I love you. But, watch close and listen intently.
It says a lot more than just those three words.
It says; "I'm not perfect, but I will try to get better with every step I take with you. I'm not good, but I am sure, I'll come around to being good enough."
"Your smile, electric as it is, raises my pulse, like a race car. The way you look at my face, sends blood rushing to my cheeks."
"You're the oasis, if I was a desert. The only selling grace, I have. You're the time that stops, when we meet. You're the anchor that keeps me from floating off."
"You're like infinity, one that I'd like to count on, forever. You're the smile on my face. You're the flush in my cheeks."
"You, alone, are the reason for my sanity. You alone are also the reason, I'd love to lose my sanity for. You're the perfect sunset, only I get to watch. You're the skip in my step and the melody of my beat."
"If I could give you anything in the world, I'd give up the soul. If I was stuck in an illusion, you'd be my reality. If I wanted away from reality, you'd be my perfect illusion."
"If I a was mirage; something everyone could see but not touch, you'd be the only hand, that reaches me. I know all this is nothing to be astounded by,
but, hear me out. I'm just here as a cloud, passing by and you, my love, are the sky."
"If I could speak to you often, you'd hear me stammer more than you'd think. You take my word, my breath, with every blink."
"I love you as much as the stars love to light up the sky."
"If I was the earth, you'd be the sun, I'd never turn away from. If all I get to do was watch you, I'd rather not blink even once. What if I do, and you're gone at once?"
"It's not your fault, if I feel a pinch or bite. It's me feeling a lot, that isn't your fault. I'd never blame you, for being who you are.
I love you for that one reason, not just for your face, but the person you are."
"I have a lot of scars, I hold, in secret. Harsh, scalding and terrifying, too. But, you're the one that makes those scars vanish, even without you realizing it."
"Never have you made me sad or made me cry, so far. Never have you stung me, not once. Known to you or unbeknownst."
"If I'm the dagger of time, you're the sands that fuel me and keep me going. You're the breath in my lungs. I'm the cliche, you're the innovation."
"Your happiness, I love. My happiness, when I'm with you, is real and something I can't measure up to."
"You're the only abyss, I'd love to lose myself in. The magnetic north to me. My Number One!"
"If you were the moon, I'd live my life out, watching you in awe, holding the night as is."
"If, after all this, after I open myself up to you, show you the scars and the bleeding wounds, you still love me, which I hope you do, say 'I love you' and I'll say,
"'And I, you.'"
