Infatuation, Love, Poetry

What Made You Say, “I Love You”?

What made you say, “I love you”,
When you really didn’t mean it?

Your words elated me.
I was so high up I waved to India
On my way to the moon.

Now I’m stuck out here in lunar orbit
And without oxygen to breath.

    1. This is going to surprise you, Marysa, but I was thinking of the things you’ve told me about how some foolish people have treated you when I wrote the poem. That was the poem’s inspiration — not my life, but yours, as you’ve related it to me.

      1. Ok, this is pure brag, but I can’t help it. I’m so proud of myself for composing this poem more or less in your style — because, after all, you inspired it. I thought that was clever of me. Yeah, I’m insufferably proud of it, too.
