"I Love You"

I didn't mean to say it!
It just slipped out, I swear.
I would give anything to take it back
And escape that aching stare.

I seems I say it now
More than when we were together
I couldn't admit it then
But you always knew

Now I say it so carelessly and
I can see the hurt in your eyes
Your eyes don't lie,
They never did, neither did mine.

Even if I never open my mouth again,
It will be written all over my face.
And deep down in my eyes, you'll see
What I never told you.

This is a sad piece but unfortunatly these things happen with that dreaded 'L' word. I hope that everything works out for you.

ohh, that is a sad poem. yes, "love" is a tricky word, you have to know when to say it, who to say it to, and worse, when NOT to say it.... nice poem tho.

 "Sa souvraya niende missian ye." \
I am lost in my own mind.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire,
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
And would suffice.

Thank you for this.  It's real bittersweet though.  Finding love is wonderful, but I'm sorry this was the ending.  There will be a day when "love" will roll off your tounge and it will reply back "me too". Thanks again.

I can relate to this.  I haven't told the one that I love that I love him, but I can say I am scared of the "aching stare" and, thus, cannot say that I love him.  Nice poem, though.

I know where you are coming from! You can never tell when to say I love you to anyone!

I like this poem. It is very nice. I hope you keep writing. I think this poem is good because it rings true for so many people.


Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men and their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught the sun in flight,
And learn too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

-Dylan Thomas
