a poem about poems and love

October 6, 2016

What I have always loved
about writing is
the simplicity of words
intertwined
thus creating beautiful thoughts and sentences.

The same man
who made me fall
in love with
poetry
also made me
fall deeply
in love
with him.

Every line he writes
is a subtle gateway
to his mind and soul.
He never writes a poem
for a girl, he says.

But he did once
for me.

He read me his
favorite poems
by dead poets
on a warm Sunday
at Fort Green Park.

It was truly
one of my favorite
dates of all time.

I guess you can say
Poetry and love
are similar.
It can make you
filled with life
or empty.
