If I Loved You

By Damien Knight

If I have to tell you I love you
Than what is the point?
If I have to say a word
Then I have failed
The proof of my love
Has not been my words
But the fact that I keep
Coming back to you
Love and let go
Take your losses
They told me
And I believed
But I knew you were hurting
And hurt like that hurts me
But I won’t say I love you
Done, finished, over
I cannot say the words
Because I cannot hurt you
More than you already are
And I cannot be what
I hoped to be
I am no white knight
I will not save you
Just be there
In the shadows
Sadly always waiting to be
