Better Left Unsaid

Say it like a prayer,
Softly and sweetly.

Reverently lay it
Upon an alter. 

Make it fine
As perfume
Fragrance,
Blasted
Like Springtime
In bloom.

Never meanly offer it;
Savor the richness.

Please!

Remember——-

Love can be harsh
(Sometimes)
And it can crawl
Across our skin
(Oftentimes) 
Like a plague.

Say it in jest,
Watch me crumble. 

Laugh at it,
Deliver my death blow. 

Those three words,
(That one single line)
Must not be fraudulent. 

An “I love you”
Spoken
In haste
Does nothing
But murder the soul. 

I should know,
I lost myself to it
Long ago.
