double connotations

I love you
If you think about it, those are the first words you hear out of your parents mouth right after you’re born
With the exception of your name
I love you
With a tired fatigued breath your mother still has enough strength to push out one more powerful word
I love you
Throughout your life you end phone calls with three words, you recite it to the fortunate person who has your heart
I love you
But sometimes I love you isn’t all sunshine and rainbows sometimes it’s a double connotation
I’m high, but I still love you
I didn’t mean to hit you, I promise I’ll change, I love you
I can’t live unless I have you, please don’t leave I love you
I’m sorry I cheated I still love you
How can something so beautiful have such a double meaning
And then I realized not everyone’s definition of love is the same
And I think that’s what hurts about love the most
