There are many out there who feel that "Love" is a dirty word. I am not one of those.

Love is not a dirty word


No matter how you say it


The dirt is in the hurt you felt


When someone else betrayed it


 


I did not betray you


Or trample on your trust


I'm just the one here now


To witness your disgust


 


Let me explain it to you


In words I hope you'll hear


With the true st pure emotion


I swear, I love you dear


 


These words are meant for comfort


And not to cause you pain


As I watch you flinching


I'll say it once again


 


I love you, like a brother


I love you, my true friend


And when I say I love you


It's something I'll defend


 


It's not a dirty word


It's not a cause for war


It's simply affirmation


That you, I do adore

very nice
Reviewed by Katherine Harms
The poet's beloved has apparently been betrayed in the past and is unable to accept love again. The poem speaks as if the poet did not know how deep that betrayal was until she revealed her own love. This relationship has a long way to go. Excellent portrayal of a situation that sounds extremely challenging.
