Abstract Love - Poem by Tribhuvan Mendiratta

Too abstract is LOVE!
Yet it lives-
In slow songs.
Ripples down;
every stride every step.
Can be found;
On crushed leaves;
Of the grass
Can be found in
Leftovers of chocolate malt.
I see it in you.
And it smiles back,
Flushed, un-scalded,
And perfect.

Topic(s) of this poem: love

    Wow! This is a perfect love-song! Is it abstract? Or says clearly - " I see it in You" .
    Congratulations on this poem being chosen! Well-deserved!

    A sweet poem. Short and to the point about love.

    'Leftovers of chocolate malt.
    I see it in you.
    And it smiles back,
    Flushed, un-scalded,
    And perfect.'... is so nice. Loved it. Congrats.

    Almost anything could be said about love and it would be valid. This poem is an example of that. I like, 'Yes, it lives in slow songs." (Report)Reply
