Speechless

sad_eyes_by_simouna

What do you say to an
“I love you”
when you try so desperately
to reciprocate it
but something in your chest tenses
and those words choke you up
until you want to cough them out
because something about you,
something about them,
makes it so hard to love
I’ve come to learn
out of all the things
you could say to it,
there’s one thing you can’t:
I love you, too
