A poem about one of my biggest regrets, written in the midst of emotion post-breakup. I wish you knew.

"I Didn't Mean To Say 'I Love You'" - A Poem

I didnt mean to say "I love you";

It was careless,

Foolish,

To allow those words to tumble out with a common phrase.

But you took it as gospel,

And I knew I'd messed up:

It was far too early, and far too late to go back.

So I lived with it.

We lived with it.

You said it back.

Politely, I know.

I'm sorry it wasn't perfect.

I'm sorry it was rash,

But here's the truth:

The more I said it,

The more I really did mean it,

And one day I realised it was true:

Totally and completely true.

I love you.

I love you.

I love you.

But it's too late.
