Three Words (an old wound)

You once told me
that I used those three words
too often
and now it seems meaningless
to you somehow..

Is that how things work?
The more you repeat
a certain phrase or words,
the lesser the meaning becomes?

If that’s so, why is it
you still mean the world to me
even though I spent most waking hours
repeating your name in my head
like a mantra
and most sleeping hours
dreaming of you
’til oblivion?
