• They constantly slip my grasp
    Ever sliding off my tongue
    They never truly explain their meaning
    Always open to cause more pain
    Ever eluding me
    Never quite right for the moment
    Why do the words escape me?
    Take my breath away
    Drown me in silence
    Three simple words do so much damage
    But how I must ask
    They should bring joy
    These specific words are scary
    Simple to say yet so devastating
    Three simple words
    I love you
