Sunday Kind of Love

I want to say “I love you”


Saying it out loud means I could let the hurt back in.

I don’t know if I’d survive another heartbreak


I’m willing to risk it all if you’re willing to love me whole.

That’s not something we can guarantee


In the moments when I feel safest with you,

I’ll whisper those three words.

Because maybe if I say them softly the recoil won’t hurt as much as my fears say they will.

My soul wants peace and my heart wants a Sunday kind of love


my mind doesn’t think I can have both.

My body doesn’t know a peaceful love


It deserves to.

I want to say “I love you” and there be no exception.
