Three simple words, forbidden to say,
 You really don't want to hear them anyway.
 Just close the eyes, hold the breath,
 Those simple words to utter find death.

 A gentle kiss, the words bubble again,
 "I want to be more than a friend,"
 Oops did I just say that?
 Awe... It was the cat.

 I'll make a joke, poke fun,
 Maybe he won't notice the damage I've done.
 Never again! To feel my heart seep red,
 Never again! How they burn to be said!
 I thank you God for your strength! Really! I do!
 I didn't say, I love you........

    This poem made me smile. I, at times, must hold my tongue. Of course, I feel that at my age I can say what I want. My wife, the wise one of the family, knows better.
