That Fourth Little Word

A bespoke melody,
They sing to you:
Those three words.
Perhaps expressed accidentally,
Though no less heart-felt,
Or uttered slowly
After much thought
And consideration.
All at once,
A coming together
Of comfort and desire.
A rush, inexplicable,
Though many have tried
To describe it.
The ultimate human emotion.
However,
There’s a little word
That will shatter those
Three words
If found hovering
In the space after them.
It’s such a little word,
Yet it has the power
To break a heart
And destroy a sentiment.
It will change the meaning
Of those three words
And it will leave you
Feeling empty
And adrift.
It will come to us all,
So be prepared
For that sinking moment
When somebody tells you

I love you, but
