You'Ve Got To Know Love - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You've got to know love...
To exit and escape,
The introduction of heartache.
Love isn't fake!
Or a slice of frosted cake baked.
Ready for an opinion,
To please a discriminating taste.

Love takes forgiveness animated.
Shown...
And not debated.
Unrated to amazed.
And when it is delicious...
Love can get vicious!
To leave a once fit mind,
Helplessly defined as whipped and crazy.

You've got to know love...
To exit and escape,
The introduction of heartache.
Love isn't fake!
Or a slice of frosted cake baked.
Ready for an opinion,
To please a discriminating taste.

These are not those days,
To leave precious crumbs...
Laid around on assorted plates.

You've got to know love,
With a patience unlike none other.
If you want it shared...
To keep you fed,
With it!
