“THE PHILOPHOBIC LOGOPHILE”

What if I told you that I loved you like how grateful I am that the sun still shines every day?

It’s so corny, they’d say.

Everything’s already been re-written for too many times nowadays.

 

What if I told you that I loved you like the moon overcomes the darkness above?

Would that be enough?

It may be just the same old stuff.

 

What if I told you that I loved you like the most beautiful lyrics to a famous love song?

Would it be wrong?

What if I can’t keep this too long?

 

What if I can’t find any words to express this?

Still, I am enchanted by this enigmatic bliss.

You’re the one I always miss.

 

What do you think of this cheesy form of poetry?

It’s especially made for you, for free,

even when I’m not so sure that you’ll love me.

 

I have completely surrendered to this fear,

only to have you near,

but we all know who’s always The Decision Maker here.

 

I love you,

through every written line so true.

Not much I can do.

 

Let these waves of emotions

form into words of compassion.

Whatever God decides of us,

hopefully none of us will feel lost.

 

I love you,

for as much as time allows me still,

to just pray for your happiness too…
