Would it Kill You?

Would it kill you…
to say those three words to me,
to tell me I’m beautiful,
to tell me you can’t live without me?

Would it kill you…
to make an effort,
to try harder,
because you said you will?

Would it kill you…
to write me a love letter,
to make me feel special,
to think of me more than twice a day?

You know I love you.
You know I need that extra attention.
You told me you’d work on it.
You promised.

Would it kill you…
to stay true to your word,
to honor a commitment,
to do what you say you will?

I don’t think so.
