About Love Poem by Cia Frizzell

About Love

Rating: 4.1


when i was a child i did not name things i loved
'this is my favorite marble'
would always lead to somebody asking for it in a game of keeps

when i was a teenager i did not name boys i loved
because then my best friend would want them
and she always got what she wanted

when i was a woman i shouted my love from the rooftops
and felt foolish when it went away

now that i'm older i no longer have to name it
it's love all the same

What folk have taken whole plays & epics to say, you manage in a few lines. Been there, recognise it, have the privilege of letting your eyes see my world. Thank you.

'What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell a sweet.' The bard said it memorably in Romeo's voice and your have matched the sentiment in a voice of your own. A strong, clear poetic voice which is beautifully understated and sublimely honest. love, Allie xxxx
