Little Words

If I tell you every day, two, three, four times, that you are my heart, that you make me feel safe, that I would spend every minute of every day of forever with you, that I love you, does it make you feel trapped? Do three words become your prison or do they set you free?

If I never told you that the smell of your neck is like a drug, that your smile makes my heart skip a beat or that every time I hear your voice I smile, would you forget that I love you?

I wish you knew that each day that passes with out I love you I drift a bit farther down the stream of happily ever after headed to the ocean of what used to be. Your silence speaks louder than you know.

Does I love you get stronger or weaker each time it's said? I wish I knew, because the answer may be the only thing that brings us back to us.

I do know that love ebb and flows. I don't know why, getting it back isn't easy, but very worth the effort of trying.

I love it when you get deep.

Oh, Thystle, I could have written this myself. I feel sad now. And fricken A if I don't have tears in my eyes. You really are a worthy read.

Maybe he would say it more often if you weren't so free with your BJs.

Sorry. My bad. That was beautiful.

I'm with Nadine--it's very impressive how precisely you are able to capture these abstract sensations/experiences/thoughts and put them into words.

I love reading about things I have felt but never tried to describe in words, and then see that someone else did it perfectly! Good job.
