"you will regret feelings so exquisite" -H. L. Hix

I can regret it in capital letters
because we are born with our emotions
and no map to plot them out.

I say, "I love you,"
and it means, keep your head above the water.
I say, "I love you,"
and it means, keep your heart inside your throat.

you can't use GPS to sort this out.
your map is folded up and backwards,
and when you look in the mirror
I call you beautiful
but you don't understand.

I say, "I love you,"
and it means, look behind you.
I say, "I love you,"
and it means, there is a monster breathing down your back.

this is a feeling like
a Vesuvian complexity,
perfectly preserved in ash.
I dust you off.

I say, "I love you,"
and it means, I want to peel the clothes off your body.
I say, "I love you,"
and it means, run away as fast as you can.

you take abstract photographs
and call them sensual.
I just call them sex with inanimate objects
that I can't keep under control.

I say, "I love you,"
and it means, I want you.
I say, "I love you,"
and it means, this feeling is so exquisite
I should bottle it for perfume.

but I don't understand what I'm feeling
because you took my reservations
and trapped them between your breasts.
I had to go and breathe them out
but I didn't have the breath.

I say, "I love you,"
and it means just what I said.
I say, "I love you,"
but I spell it regret.
A poem for someone I love. I'm usually not this good at writing poems for real people...

If you think it needs to be mature "warning" tagged please tell me and I'll do it.

The actual title is "Love Poem #12" but for some reason you're not allowed to use pound signs in the title.

'Grats on the win!

This is beautiful. I love how you didn't just settle for one meaning of love- you gave a bunch- and theyre all true.
Great work.
