It's been ages since I told you, 'I love you'
Or showed you that I do
It's not that I'm not in love with you
I am. But, being loved by you and loving you
Feels like a habit- consistent, like breathing,
and predictable like the rising sun
Maybe, if our love
Was like the moon-
Waning and waxing
Or the tide- rising and falling
Maybe,then I'd need to
proclaim my love for you, like lovers do.
This is not me making an excuse
This is me saying, 'You are my muse'
If it appears like I love so much else, it's true.
But, that's only because of the love i have for you.
P.S - I wan't sure whether to add the last 2 stanzas or end the poem at 'like lovers do'. What do you think?

Hi Smitha, I think the last two stanzas make it romantic. Without them it speaks about how we don’t say I love you because love is a habit – very true – and you could draw the conclusion that there isn’t enough love left, because it’s no longer grand, but the last verse in particular grounds it again in love, by saying everything else follows on from the love you have for the person in the poem.
Hi Andrea, thank you for explaining the difference to me- between keeping the two stanzas and not. With this clear difference that you point out, you’ve cleared all doubt. I’m retaining it🙂. I especially like how you say that the last verse makes love ‘grand’. Thank you so, so much❤.
