Te Quiero


“Te quiero”.


Those empty words
never meant anything to me
just like they never meant
anything to you.


There is no passion
on your tongue;
your words fall flat.


Your love isn’t real,
I can’t feel your sincerity
because it’s not there.


You can say you love me
nonstop until your last breath,
but I’ll never believe it.


Te odio.
