I love you.

The purpose of a poem is to paint a picture in your mind. Can this be done in five words. Five words. Five sort words. I suppose a pedant would say five and a half words as "I'm" is an abbreviation. When you see this what do you think? It could be contrition after an act of betrayal, or it could be a tender last message to a much loved moggy as the vet humanely eases it out of its misery. I am sure it is something we'll all say at some point and I'm sure that it will be difficult and heartfelt. But then it could be a throwaway line, at the end of a text message when you've forgotten to send your partner a bunch of flowers on their birthday or even a rock star announcing their retirement. Five simple words. What picture does it paint for you?
