From You Poets Poem by Julia Luber

From You Poets

Rating: 4.9


And so recently, like let's say TODAY, I fell in love.
And this is a very big deal because…..so say it only lasts
for a week or two, or at minimum until tomorrow, to have
an emotion at this point, with what I've gone through lately-
I fear I'd have to borrow.

So I'm borrowing this from you poets out there.
To feel love, to fall in love, to for once not really care:
not really care about the heart-break and friendship terrorist wound-
just to live in the now while I fall in love today, shall I croon.
And this is important. It's making me survive.

I have never been filled with so much hate as for the past decade
so much so at this point I am surprised I am even alive. So I fell
in love for today and we'll see where it goes. Shall I nod, shall I tip,
shall I bow, shall I pose? How long can I keep this dignity I'm feeling
so from you poets for today, it is being in love, that I'm stealing.

So I'm borrowing this from you poets out there. To feel love, to fall in love, to for once not really care: not really care about the heart-break and friendship terrorist wound- just to live in the now while I fall in love today, shall I croon. And this is important. It's making me survive. - - - - -It is so nice to see that poetry gives you a reason to love and a desire to live, though you are uncertain whether this spirit will last long.

Sad, but you get your point across in poetic form.

Julia, what a novel sentiment. I loved it! Being denied love, but grasping the words of love from other poets to fulfill a need or a day in your life. Truly a blues sonnet. Thanks for sharing.. : -)

Beautiful and poignant. Please do keep at it, yourself. Find your hope wherever you need to find it. Survive. As your poem so wonderfully illustrates, you are by no means alone.
