Love

Poetry

Love

A version of love

Love

A word

Feeling 

Emotion

One that I lacked 

Searched empty vessels & souls

Tryna fulfill a need that 

No one can meet

Close my eyes on the times

Of how many ‘I love you’

Were spoken past age maybe 9

Count on my hand 

The phrase meaningless

Emotionless 

Dare me to say it

Maybe with a straight face

Poker face

Or out of the sheer notion of politeness

I’m doing it for you

My heart and words aren’t lined accordingly 

Enough

For me to be sincere enough

I love you

Been dreaming of an experience 

To equate love to

Guess, I love my makeup

And dedication to work

More than a person

Apply love to a breathing soul

And my dog receives love and affection 

Everyday

Apply it to a person

I’ve been empty since the time I was made

How to fix it 

How to be resourceful

And say 

I love you

Eh, dare to remain this way

Does love even want me

Or want to swing my way 

For an occasional hey
