I’d Say Them No More

I’d Say Them No More

If these words, those words

Cannot quicken the beats of your heart,

Cannot cause a surge of your emotive heat

I’ll stop using them, yes,

I’ll say them no more

 

But these words, those words

Are not new to you and me

We’ve heard it through and through

You know the words I’ve sought –

The words I’ve said in plenty ways

 

And these words, those words

Are used everywhere and anywhere

By those who mean and those who don’t

Within families, among friends,

And between friends like you and me

 

These words, those words

You’ve refused to say to me – in fear?

You make a face, or breathe a sigh

And then you say I’ve heard

When I say those words

 

I’ll say these words no more

If you really don’t want me to

I’d bury them in an emotional gore

Since you disagree or hate me so

I’ll say those words no more

 

Because,

I LOVE YOU beyond these –

And those –

Words

    Oh, but ‘that person’ made me say them again! Can someone imagine how she did it?

    I love it!!! Most times however, you don’t get to hear the words you desire from the person you’ll like to hear it from.
