  • I've said 'I love you' before - to a friend I hadn't seen in a while, to a family member who held me close in their arms, to a girl who never said it back.

    I said 'I love you' once - to an acquaintance I didn't really like, to a family friend who "knew me when" and thinks that means they know me now, to a girl who made me numb and made the words feel numb, too.

    I'll say 'I love you' - to my friends when we greet and leave each other, to my family when we are reminded the same blood pumps through our veins, and to my girl the next time I see those blue, blue eyes.
