can only say so much

it is not so much 'the word'
that carries the entire weight of its signification

but rather something else
that i am not exactly sure of

for example:
i can say 'i love you' to anyone

but it would not hold its true meaning
had i not meant it, had you not felt it

our own words often fail to express what we feel
thus, we seek refuge in abstractions

metaphors and quotations express the unexpressible
yet they conceal as much as they reveal

words. words.
