When You Say You Love Me You Need Not Mean It - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when you say you love me you need not mean it
i do not demand that the love i get be pure
nothing about its sanctity is a condition of my flesh
i always understand how this world works
how each creature finds a way to survive
that is why i do not really demand much
i do not even pay attention
i do not weigh words

because words are just words
and sometimes they hurt

i do not demand that you mean it
for there were many times when i also say them
without any meaning at all

let me tell once again: what 's love got to do with 'it'?
