Not In Love - Poem by Christine Natale

It is hard to write a love poem
When you’re not in love.
I long to sing of flowers of fire
And burning stars above.
I want to feel as silver-quick
As a river to the sea,
And to tremble like a silver leaf
Upon an aspen tree;
To sing a world turned inside out
And to see the mountains move,
But it’s hard to write a love poem
When you’re not in love.

    Not in Love doesn't mean Never been in Love, You definitely have been in Love. So your poem tells me so. (Report) Reply
