This is a poem I wrote after my best friend, (now my boyfriend) told me he loved me for the first time. We both understood that "love" is a strong word and we rarely used it because at that time we weren't together yet so we didn't want to say anything we were unsure of.
This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Teenage Love Poems
Don't tell me you love me if you are not sincere|
For a lie that strong can ruin my life and bring on a new fear.
Fear to be loved, fear to love ever again
It can cause my fragile heart to break, tear and bend.
Think of all in life that will be missed
because of one small broken promise
So, when I put all of my trust deep within you
Please don't tell me you love me, unless you truly do.
