I Love You

I love you meets silence and there are no survivors
Only
Reconsideration of thought expressed
Perhaps
Questioning of continued intent for eternity
I can say it only so many times
Before
The sound heard once too often fades to nothing
Before
Emotion dissipates
Leaving
Remnants of what should always have been like too many already scars
This body
Scarred by wars beyond remembering
Of
Little girls and other lives and all the alcohol that blinds
So
My heart is more scar than tissue
Perhaps
That’s why my words lack the resonance to elicit feeling
