she wanted a love poem

by Mark

Everyone adores the Love poem
But they are so hard to
Write. How to quantify the
Four letter word? It is light
Escaping beneath the clouds
Causing your eyes to squint,
The bird soaring above you
Try to tract but just can’t fallow.
It’s a game of make believe
Where no one dies when
They touch the lava yet,
No one wins.
It’s the child blowing bubbles
Trying to catch, knowing or not
That they won’t last.
How am I to write you a
Love poem.

– Him
