A Harsh Confession - Poem by Lara W.A

Unlike some people,
My I Love Yous don’t come out easy.
They get stuck on their way out,
Right there,
Before my affection blooms.
And like raising a big swollen lump in my throat,
Holding back,
Hurts that much.

    Man, you just took the words right out of my mouth and penned them so perfectly. I don't use those three words 'I love you' except to my 2 sons. I guess as long as you don't love or at least let them know how you feel it makes it that much harder to be hurt. Enjoyed the read..thank yuo.
