I like you
and I don’t want you getting the wrong idea.
So let me make this abundantly clear.
I love my morning mug of coffee
followed by several others through the day.
I love it when it rains and
I love the sound of trains.
I love the sight of my bed
after a long gruelling day.
I love songs most people abhor and
I love reading stories with happy endings.
I love white flowers, a crescent moon,
being in on secrets, and brushing my teeth.
You… are awesome and I like you.
But unless I like you more than coffee,
please don’t expect to say, “I love you”
because it simply won’t be true.
