A Harsh Confession Poem by Lara W.A

A Harsh Confession

Rating: 4.2

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.

I may be old enough to be your grandmother but you speak right to my heart!

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. Rene'
