I can’t say “I love you”

I’ve thrown around the words I love you my whole life With you, I can’t 

You aren’t like them 

I can’t tell you I love you 
I can’t tell you I love you 

I can’t

What I feel is deeper 

Love doesn’t even scratch the surface 
So, I won’t tell you I love you 

It has no meaning anymore 

It would be a shallow sentiment 
What I will tell you 

What I feel 

There are few words that have meaning 

Home, safe and darkness 
So when you tell me “I love you” 

I’ll respond 

“You’re my ride home…”
