Dreaded Words

I am not good at saying
“I love you.”
I believe it is the kind of phrase
that is overused
and underproven
but that’s not where my troubles end.
It is hard
for me
to let the words to come out.

One girl said those few words to me
after a couple of weeks
of intensity
and I only said, “I beat you to it,”
but did I?
I could but say it second.
I was unwilling
to place my head
on the block first.

I like to express my affection
while avoiding those dreaded syllables.
I want to show grand gestures
not simply say something
and nakedly await a response.
The latter
is far too scary.

I was involved
with Olive Juice Records
but no more.
