I Meant To Tell You I Love You
Tim O'Brien is a genius.
If, after writing this short poem, I tell you that it is truth (not true, exactly, just truth)
I will be using the same logic that makes Tim O'Brien a genius.
Did you mean it?
Are you honest?
Will you be gone when I come home?
I promised I'd be back -
Will you still love me while I'm away?
A poem typically consists of various types of artistic patterns
that attempt to convey an emotion.
My short poem conveys a
sense of longing or loss
and the anxiety of not knowing
what to expect as a result of
some unexplained event.
That is truth behind those words. The poem itself is not in fact true.
No one promised they'd still love me if I left.
He didn't say I love you at all.
