borrowed words

bear with me if everyday,
i spout cliches.
you leave me
speechless,
breathless,
and in want of sparkling words.
i love you
i need you
i miss you
... what can i possibly say
that has not been said before?

this cliche
i am in
of two best friends
who decide to end friendship
for the promise of love;
seems so uncharacteristically novel,
that i wonder,
how it ever bore the label
of a generic phenomenon.

for in truth
there is nothing generic
or expected
or common
about you
or about us...
ours is a completely spontaneous spark
ungoverned by any template
they've preset for us

so forgive me
if i offer
none but borrowed words
you see speech only aides to express
what hearts already know
