Love Or Love's Archetype

How to love, my love
which way do you prefer?
Love as a feeling
or love as a word?

Death Of A Loved One, Fiction.

She knew her King James by heart,

Both extravagantly compelling and tirelessly disheartening
So naturally, along you came, seeming of the unnatural,

Undisturbed by the bad news on the television

It does not flinch
or consider a disappearance
