I Love You Are Three Words

I love you are three words that taste
Like bubble gum when said in haste
Compare me to a traveling show
Pedaling cures for all that ails
Masking the truth in a million details

Parade me out for all to see
Time the promises to a tee
I left my yardstick when you called
And fell too hard, too long, too deep
Assail me not if I sold myself cheap

Who can discern the heart’s recess
Just walk one mile, more or less
Slip on my sandals, warm and worn
Remember selflessness is never passé
Fling sweet sentiments along the way
