begging the cliche of i love you

flattened
leveled

stampeded
by excessive use

my tongue
seems fatigued
by it....

vellum histories
a mortuary of dusty books
tells of passions

today we

doom it with
valentine gloss

perfuming with
pay pal bloom

how do i say it ?
exiting every earnest cell
in you

do i inject it into your eyes?
scan it into your brain ?
or pray it into your brain?

uttering without any
contrivance

i love you

reviving its decline

please say it again

  1. Oh you are a brilliant poet, Martin. I would write love poetry if I thought I could do it justice like you have in this one.
