Do I know what Im even saying? Can it even count? The words spout out, but are they watering seeds? I mean, its one thing to say it, but to live it with conviction in my heart, body, mind, spirit, soul maybe takes more hours behind the wheel than I know I have I love You, slips through my lips to easily, as easily as soap slips through my hands, socks slip on my feet.
This worries me.
I know Im better than passes in the dark, better than quick kisses on the cheek as the lights go out. I cant find comfort in the complacency, in the lukewarm bath. So, from there, I ask my questions, and, like Socrates predicted, I find my answers. You first loved me; this love convicts me. You call my name; this love convicts me.
Still, I worry myself.
For too long, every time You looked my way to soothe me, I retorted with a slap to Your face. And I heard the call, I heard the call, but I let it fall on deaf ears. What can I say to defend my self? Well, I could say Im only a child. Im too young in You. I dont know any better I couldnt kid myself with that. Everyone knows excuses are excuses and there are none for what I have done
That worries me.
See why I question how with no effort I love You, is vocalized? Someone deep in me is the one who says it, of this I am certain. Somewhere deep in my heart, body, mind, spirit, soul is me, and, with conviction, he speaks what I long to say. Relayed, he speaks:
I love You.

I like this. It's very powerful. I'm not an expert on poetry but it read like a poem to me. Just a thought.

Ouch! So realistic - well done and reads well. As another comment was made, suggest poetry.
