I’ve been trying for an hour now to write a poem to disguise the words ‘I love you’ behind colorful vivid images. Why am I hiding it? Because it might be too overwhelming for the person I want to say it to if I say it straight out. But then I’m failing so far and my words are not doing any justice to this love I want to show. My efforts are making it feel a bit too fake, a bit too forced, a bit too complicated.
And so without any hesitations, without complexities, without shame, without any hint of untruth,
I love you.
You know who you are.
