A Love Poem - Poem by Haris Rigoo

Do not ask me to write a love poem

for I do not know what


love is.


Is it fire?




or is it the slow drip of water


again and again and again through the rock

of our resolve?


Can love be sleepy?




Or must it always be caffeinated


Zigging and Zagging with fierce ups and downs


Is love pain?

To be burned and sucker punched

time and time again

to taste lightning and

want to weep for the sweet agony?


Or rather, is it kindness?

Sweet words, slow sex, eyes meeting

laquered over and over with thick sticky layers

made sloth like by your glut

near vomiting with gratitude


I do not know

What exactly love is

how to feel it

how to




The words come so easily

I love you

iloveyou iloveyou iloveyou

but what do they mean?
