Happy Valentine’s Day

How to say I Love you.


Anthony Labson


Don’t say “I love you”

with a serpent’s tongue.

Spreading your false energy

through my veins — that’s worse than

any venom and murders the heart the quickest.


Don’t say “I love you”

like a child does a toy,

something that is to be enjoyed

for a short period time and then discarded

without a care for the one who is used

and will be left alone in dark misery.


Don’t say “I love you”

at all.


Give that person a gift

at an unexpected time,

and give it for no reason.


Kiss that person,

not with lustful intentions

but with meaningful ones.


Do something for that person,

not because they asked

but because you want to for them.


Be there for that person

no matter what the reason,

even when they don’t want you to.


Look each other in the eyes

and enjoy that moment of silence,

that moment where words have no purpose.


Finally, hold that hand.

That is always the first step

and will always be the most important one.


If you want to say “I love you”

and actually mean it.

Then don’t say it at all.
