Love can’t conquer anything

I want love to conquer all. But love can’t conquer anything. It can’t do anything on it’s own.

It relies on us to do the conquering on its behalf.

I won’t tell you I love you in bliss and ecstasy
I won’t tell you I love you after a kiss
I won’t tell you I love you when it is too easy to say so

Not when I am too happy or too sad
Not when I miss you so much
Not when I am still infatuated

Not when I see you looking so beautiful
Not when I hear you saying things I need to hear
Not when I feel you touching me even from a distance

I will tell you I love you

when fairytale falls into disaster
when almost perfect becomes ordinary
when beautiful emotions turns out to be just emotions

I will tell you I love you

when surreal has lost its prefix
when things aren’t anymore pretty
when fantasies have fit into realities

You never gave me the chance
But I wanted you to know
That I love you
And I always have
