I want to say I love you – A Poem

I want to say I love you


Without a tight feeling in my chest

Without my bottom lip going stiff

Without an onrush of self-consciousness


Without my flesh sucked in

Without my back stooping

Without the comedy routine


I want to say I love you


Without being thrown in stark relief

Without the rise of frightened need

Without the lack of self-belief


Without the painful loss of air

Without discomfort when you stare

Without the feeling I’m elsewhere


I want to say I love you


Without my eyes feeling so cold

Without the fear of the unknown

Without the legless vertigo


Without the chill of being bare

Without a mumbled inner prayer

Without the fear that I don’t care


I love you




The world is insane and I'm in writing therapy!

  1. I’m speechless..I’m not sucking up… I am still catching up on your works and I am loving how you write – juz sayin’

  2. I do connect and you are welcome and I think deep down there is more than meets the eye…tenderness..not at all like that grumpy Panda pic 🙂

  3. I won’t tell if you don’t….

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
