When asked to write a love poem ( no one asked ), I apparently choke. It isn’t so much as its difficult to write a love poem : someone once said that all poems are in essence love poems. It just so happens that when asked to write a Love poem, I become overwhelmed by memory, and the best I can do is avoid the point. The result is this poem, which finally came together two days ago, not enough time for a good polish.
I thought I’d invite you to read an actual love poem, in a previous post, to make up for this poem.
