I Love You

Every time,

you turn your head

I expect you to speak,

but the words that come out

are not the ones I seek.

"I Love You"

bears the meaning

of how you really care.

These, the words,

I wish you to say.

These, the words

I dare.

Love Story

Remember the movie "Love Story"? I do not care if you are a lumberjack in the Amazon or an Ice Road Trucker, you can not sit through this movie without having at least one tear bungee jumping down your cast iron cheek. I was a super sensitive teenager when I first saw it. Well, I was pretty much kidnapped at finger-point and forced to watch it with my girlfriend at the time. Movies like this tend to rip your spine out and leave you as a quivering pile of useless flesh on the carpet. I was no different. Dragging myself back home, I regained the muscles in my hand long enough to strike out some poetic words inspired by the movie. Twenty years later, I have regrown my spine, but I believe I am still missing a disc or two. This movie served as the inspiration for the poem you have just read.
