To Love Her


If you want her,
open your ears
in place of your heart

if you want to know her,
open your mind
discounting life's affections

if you long to keep her,
bring with you empathy
forgetting all frivolousness

only in this manner
will you fully know
what it is

to love her.

  8. Should we each come with an instruction manual, or is it better to teach along the way, to be revealed, layer by layer within another? A little bit of both would be nice.

    Express the sensitivity of our soul,

  27. This is a beautiful and deep piece...love requires so much more than what is on the outside. Your poem certainly echoes the sentiment of the inner being. Nicely written.
