And I told her

I know my heart
cannot be opened
to confirm
if the words
that flow out of my mouth
are genuine
but the look in my eyes
would bear me witness
when I say
I love you!

For you bring out
the sweetness in me
like how the juice maker
squeezes out the juice
from oranges.

…and this sweetness
instigates my heart
to make my mouth
flow those words
I say
like, I love you!

  4. You’re words of Love clearly state your heart’s intent ღ You’ve reminded us all… that Love is “magic” so no walls can contain it, and no doors can keep it… from finding a home with another heart ღ
