three sets of three words
can make or break a person

the first set of words
a leap of faith
“will they say them back?
will they believe them to be true?”
many people say them
but few actually mean them

the second set of words
a shattered heart, a mind enflamed
a youth with uncontrollable hormones
used so lightly, taken so heavily
for they have lost their meaning through jokes
and little things
and all that erodes the cliff face of definition

the third set of words
cannot be taken back
even when you would do anything to reverse the outcome
for there is little you can do
to heal the broken wings of an angel

“I love you.”
“I hate you.”
“They are dead.”
