    it
    hurts
    when ever I hear them
    even
    if it’s the
    truth

    its
    not that
    the words are foreign
    to my ears

    its
    the fact that
    feeling truly loved is

    please…

    please
    be patient
    promise to use kid-gloves
    while managing to capture a heart
    that’s been closed from
    misuse

    it
    seems
    since you
    there’s a slight opening
    where there
    wasn’t

    so…

    I
    know
    I
    can
    get
    there
    because…
    I
    want
    to
    believe
    you love me
    I just need more time…
    more time to absorb the possibility of
    those words being said
    truthfully
    after
    hearing them
    spoken so long as lies
    simply to keep me holding on to empty dreams
    that led me here…
    abandon
    where
    I am alone
    and too afraid
    not to
    be

    in remembering that...

    all "i love you" words are meaningless without the "works" that support them. "i love you" need not be said...for its meaning to be understood. if its meaning hasn't been sufficiently conveyed, the words shouldn't be said, anyway.

    YES...I LIKE THIS.

    I
    want
    to
    believe
    you love me
    I just need more time…
    more time to absorb the possibility of
    those words being said
    truthfully


    I remember....

    Eventually, if he means it. The truth will come out...time reveals all. If we are...still.

    poignant piece, Coco...I'm feeling this soul deep.

    Simple. Yet powerful. Smooth, yet strong. We all can relate to the vulnerability of belief. But the truth still remains. Thanks!
