Three Ways to Say You Love Them

By Sutputra Radheye

First,
be honest even if even
they hate what’s coming
out of your mouth.
It will only do them good.

Second,
give them the space 
to fail and to try 
And to repeat the process.
No one ever climbed
without falling.

Third,
after a long fight
sit down, next to each other
silently. They will know
you will not leave.

One complimentary advice
the poet knows nothing
about love. You know
better.



Sutputra Radheye is a young poet from India. He has published two poetry collections — Worshipping Bodies (Notion Press) and Inqalaab on the Walls (Delhi Poetry Slam). His works are reflective of the society he lives in and tries to capture the marginalized side of the story.
