Why I Love You


I love you
not because
you're good looking

I love you
not because
you're caring

I love you
not because
you dote on me

I love you
not because
your smiles are sweet

I love you
not in lust
of your crevice
or orifice
or skin

I love you
because
without you
I feel

incomplete within.

    Very telling poem. But the last stanza and last line sealed the deal to make it complete. Nicely done, Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day
