A Love Poem


Do not ask me to write a love poem

for I do not know what

exactly

love is.

-

Is it fire?

lightning?

Passion?

-

or is it the slow drip of water

carving

again and again and again through the rock

of our resolve?

-

Can love be sleepy?

or

Slow?

-

Or must it always be caffeinated

energized

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

act

react

-

The words come so easily

I love you

iloveyou iloveyou iloveyou

but what do they mean?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
