Don’t wake my heart

Three words
They are simple and true

A song,
a novel,
Fine marble statues
Murals on city blocks,
Gardens planted with towering trees
Worlds created and brought into being
Towers that touch the sky
Paintings made of the purest beauty

It doesn’t take all of this to show you
None of it means anything

My tears
My pain
My longing
My desire

All for what
So I can mourn the distance and the separation
When all have
Is the need to speak

To say three words
Simple and true

I love you

  1. Love the first stanza especially. It’s a beautiful representation of a utopia, only to be reduced to seemingly insignificant in the next stanza. Lovely!
