“Writing I Love”

(Cowley Student: Vol. 6 - 2016)

I chose to write “I love you,” but stopped before the why.
“I love,” it wrote, there on the rusted metal bridge.
But did I? Really?
Why?
I can’t move myself to finish.
Not before I know my next move.
Do I go ahead and end it?
Do I end it with “you”?
