When I say "I love you..."

When I say “I love you”

I am not using it for the same reasons

Many others do…

I do not use it to entrap

And snare

And entangle one in my life…

I use it to express

The freedom & flight

Of my heart

I love you is not obligation

Or responsibility

(Who turned it into that?)

“I love you” is clarity

A pure vision

Of self, & of seeing self

In others, and in the world around us.

The light in me sees the light in you

I love you…

Can you feel that

And receive it

Without questioning my motives?

Or what I want in return?

Can you let it fully pass through you

Without expecting anything else from me?

Can you absorb it

And let it wash over and through you

Like an emotional orgasm

Or do you reject it

with doubt

And questions

About your own worthiness?

I love you

This does not require any maintenance.

It is a gift to do with as you please.

I love you

The light in me sees the light in you
