If I Knew That I Loved You

If I knew that I loved you
I would tell you in some grand ridiculous gesture
Something out of a Hollywood romance
Flowers and chocolate would not be enough
A dinner and a movie would seem too easy

No, if I knew that I loved you
I would write it in seven scripts
I would write them in seven places
Seven permanent locations around the world
Each continent would know my love for you

If I knew that I loved you
I would go on three quests for you
To the ends of the earth
To the bottom of the sea
To the very centre of your heart

If I knew that I loved you
No wall, minefield or gorge
No sea, mountain or stair
No cliff, army or void
Could keep me from getting to you.

But I don’t know if I love you,
I wonder and question and wait.
I don’t know if I love you
So let’s just get coffee at 8.


  1. That was cute! Though I wasn't expecting that last part! I can just see the girl's eyes getting bigger and bigger as he's telling her that and then-boom-the balloon pops and she's left standing their stunned, sort of wondering what bus just hit her!

    good job!

  2. Hehehehe, liked this, especially the end :)

  3. This is hilarious/cute/funny/witty and a bunch of other things!
    very straightforward, and engaging.

    Great work !

  4. I thought this was going to be some big declaration of love at the end. Surprising but funny ending.

  5. Maybe coffee is love.

    The lines at Tim Hortons seems to point that way.

  6. @ Ollie: I know, I think it is because it's roll up the rim season.

    Thanks for your comments everyone! I appreciate them all and I read them all.

  7. For some reason this Poem reminds me of, "You've Got Mail". I wonder if anyone else sees it that way. I am thinking of one scene in particular.
