But Never Love (Originally Untitled) – Written August 2006 (Aged 31)

But Never Love

why do they never say, love…
proud …
means a lot …
important …
but… never love
does heart have too much love
or perhaps not enough
i know that it is an over used word
like, change or quality
and even, hurt
that this ultimate level
this stunning emotional accolade
remains out of place
is heart too full?
and this is just precaution
close …
proud …
means a lot …
important …
why not say, you love someone
let it speak true
if you never say it
then you will know that they never knew
