These words aren’t mine
This poem is fake
It’s all just a lie
Explicitly designed to hide
What I really mean to say.

So I’ll say that I like
To spend time with you alone
I’ll tell you that I love
Our engaging conversations
Perhaps I’ll even say
That you’re a great friend.

Let me tell you
About the picture on your face
The frames that border two stars
Let me assure you
That I love your golden lips
And your constanly surprising looks.

I will tell you
I’m in love
With your dancing moves
I will say I admire
Your clever remarks
I will state right now
That I’m flirting thru this poem.

Let me tell you today
How much I really like you
Let me shout out loud
That I’d love to date you
Let me whisper in your ear
How much I desire you.

Let me say…
No, let me stop!
Let me tell you….
No, I’ll stop!
I’ll stop lying in this poem!
I’ll stop right now!

You see, that’s not what I mean to say
Sure you’re beatiful
But I’d lie if I said that today
Because what I really want to say
Is that I love you
And I have no idea why!

Sure you’re fun
But I can’t say that’s the reason
Why I dream about you while awake.
Sure you’re sweet
But I can’t say that’s the reason
Why I want to kiss you right now!

What I can tell you
The only thing that’s honest
Is that I LOVE YOU!
And I just don’t know why…
And I don’t really care why….

Whatever the reason
I write fake poems like this
To hide the emptiness in my heart
And to flirt and hope
That I’ll get you to feel
The same love that I feel for you.
