Demonstrations.

Tell me you love me.
Tell me so every chance you get.

Tell me every hour of every day
How my presence
And my sweet scent
Leave you foolishly intoxicated.

Tell me every hour of every day
That my warm smiles
And gentle touches
Leave you gasping for breath.

Tell me every hour of every day
That my embraces
And endearing whispers
Leave your heart racing.

Tell me every hour of every day
That your thoughts,
Only ever focusing on me,
Leave you deliriously incapable.

Tell me you love me.
Tell me so every chance you get;
And when you do,
Make sure you show me too.
I claim to love too many
To ever truly believe
In words of passion,
I lost my faith
In odes and ballads
When I began pronouncing
My falsities of love
To be true and pure
With words of affection.

You can never simply tell a poet that you love them.
