Un-love

You say that you love me
like it means something.
As if the words alone
are enough.
Love means taking the time
to check in.
Love means putting someone
before yourself,
at least sometimes.
Love means
apologizing for all the hurt you’ve caused,
or not causing it at all.
I can’t tell you I love you.
Those words have too much value,
and you are only a shadow
of a man.
