It's The Truth And You Know It - Poem by Marcus McKinley

If it is wrong for me to say, I love you
I love you, is not what I said
All the days I’ve been thinking of you
Saying, I love you, in my head

You cringe before me, I am a devil
Do you believe that because I said I am
Then… I am also a liar
Does that make the truth less of a mess

Dimming lights in the window, will soon extinguish
Bitter, the after taste of the granadilla
Souring the passion that once existed
Biting my tongue as you insisted
I the intensifier of truth and will

Is it I, you detest and scorn with spite
Mentally restless, sleepless at night
Speaking with tongue sharp, as
the letter V …… when
I say _ ____ ___ but, I am not in love

    Oh! Poet, fears of love?
    Say it loud and clear
    Nothing is bigger than
    I am in love?
    does i love you?
    Love is me, so
    I can say, I love you
