drift and destroy

I bit my tongue when I told my dad
that undying, never-ending love,
doesn’t exist.

I held the knife too tight,
when I told my mom,
in the middle of dinner
pessimism is not a disadvantage,

I chewed on the words “I know”,
I chewed them again and again:

I know,
I know,
I know.

My dad had laughed it off,
“being a cynic at your age isn’t good!”

I know.

my mom had smiled,
“being negative doesn’t solve anything!”

I know.

I do not understand anything else,
as the last time I was held was
with everything,
but love.

I have been hugged,
with lifeless arms
that was too cold to seem
real.

I have heard the words
I love you
with counter-clockwise
hearts, and unbelievable
acting talents.

love is not warm.
I know.
