Why Every Poem is a Love Poem


I am starting to understand why every poem is a love poem
It’s because nothing sucks
and nothing is as wonderful
Nothing makes you feel so alive
and so weak
As another person tugging at you, loving you, shaping you,
Nothing else makes you lose yourself and find yourself at the same time,
Only love.
