The Blind Corner Waits

I just move my lips and my tongue and breathe and the sounds are made. But still, I do not say "I love you" easily.

I love you are words i rarely use, and i've only used them on you.

E. said...

No, it's not easy.And no,you'll probably never know for many reasons.But you're the only one I wish I could say those words to right now.

you know I didn't used to have reservations about saying "I love you" if I felt I meant it. Until he broke my heart...

As I've started to let myself trust someone else, I realize how hard it's going to be to say to him if and when we ever get there.

Once again, you write as if you know me.

ERT said...

i know that you already know, so why can't i tell you?

Miss B said...

Funny.

For me, "I love you" is easily said, and often, and fully meant.

But hearing it and accepting it -- that is more difficult than almost anything.

I like the tension between ideas here. The physical versus the emotional. It's lovely the way you've taken something we all know to be true, and said it in a way that makes it brand new.

With some people, saying "I love you" is as easy as putting on a pair of pants and packing a lunch before work... and just as insignificant too. I found that out the hard way. I tell every person that I love how much I love them from friends and family to acquaintances and animals, but it means something when I say it. The simple series of words - three, exactly - is important. I say it less than I did before. Thanks for taking that away from me, too.

"I Love You" - Three most sacred words and shouldn't be utter easily.

"I Love You" - It can be misleading, deceiving, slander and malicious. It can be manipulated in many ways.

But when it is said to the right person, it can be the most beautiful three letter words given by god. (Because it is beautifully wrapped with beautiful feelings too)

Even the Angels would fall, and fly, no more.

Lover said...

I love you, Lover.

there. only for you

I say "I love you" to my friends so easily - usually jokingly but with the meaning still there underneath.

But with you, I have to be careful. It's a completely different relationship and to say those words would mean something more. And I don't know if I'm at that point yet... I'm getting there, but not yet.

On the 9th of November, 2004, I said - wrote - these three words to a girl. I was head over heels in love with her. Unfortunately, she never returned them. I had little choice but to move on, closing my feelings in a bottle so that they wouldn't devour me alive from the inside.
Recently our paths have crossed again. This time though she will have to say it. Else I'm never opening the bottle. Ever.
I may be in love but I'm not a fool.

I guess I lied too...All the excuses I tell myself still just mean I'm scared to admit even that I like you.

To me to say " I LOVE YOU" is simply a statement that says I am choosing to focus on the positive aspects of you and want to try to build upon that. It means I have decided that your opinions, perspectives, all that makes up your essence (your soul) adds value to my life. Love has always been a win/ win decision. The decisions we make after deciding to Love will be win/ win in the long run as well, so long as the follow up decisions are consistent with the original decision to Love.

with all i've seen...i'm not too willing to be blinded.....so that corner will continue to wait for me...


if love is BLIND, it requires the power of WORDS because actions, as loud as they may be, are never heard loud and clear enough!!

You won't let me love you. You are good enough. Just listen to me when I say I love you and there's no one else I'd rather be with. You want us to move on now and that's what I'll try to do. For you. Maybe one day you'll let me love you again.

Soon five (5) years will have passed since the 9th of November, 2004. A long time. We could have been together for at least part of it... everything would be different now.
Five years of our lives that we are NEVER getting back. Forever gone, no way to reclaim them.
God, I feel like I'm stuck in a cheap ripoff of some soap opera :(
Bottom line: I can't say "I love you" instead of her. Only she can.

no one can say i love you easily. it's just easier when you build up guts to say it

Anonymous said...

Oh I'm sure she will say it. When time will start squeezing her and she runs out of options, she will say it. It's just that she will probably say it to the wrong person. To someone who won't really appreciate it. Much less return it (and mean it) :)

Anonymous said...

I am prepared to say it but I'm afraid (scared actually) I won't get it back, just like the first time... in which case opening the bottle would be like committing emotional suicide. The feelings inside it are very concentrated, just aching for an opportunity to burst out.

Anonymous said...

Then again, perhaps I should simply hurl away the bottle.

and though i say those words every chance i have, i know soon i cant say those words anymore. And when that day come, i wish u still know how much i love u. :)

this is where i am. heart broken. these words speak to me.

Anonymous said...

...hurl it away because all this can only mean one thing: she never said it because there never was anything to say in the first place. At least she didn't lie...
Wow, what a soothing thought! Wonder if I could ever get used to it :((

feels unrequited

Today it struck me, out of the clear blue sky: if true, it also means something else: she can't be The One!

The One is still out there. Just waiting to be found.

Oooooh... :x

those three words i've been waiting to hear from you. for years i tried to hide what i really feel for you. now you know it and things are complicated for us. i hope you can find this too. i love you. i really do. you are my weakest and my strongest point. you make me the happiest person and you do have the power to make me the saddest one. i love you and it's true. no matter how complicated things are for us i will not easily give up this fight. you mean so much to me.
