And when I say "I love you",
I say it
knowing you've heard it
a thousand times
I say it
knowing that it sounds
Or perfunctory
I say it
knowing that sometimes you must feel awkward
like you're
being forced to
acquiesce to something
(or worse, to reciprocate)
And finally
I say it
because I feel fragile
And because if I don't
the force
might burst through my
already crumbling foundation
