Poem- Love Poems

by Crystal Torres on October 21, 2017

I do not write love poems
Love is an exchange
If you are in it,
you are in it together
Love shows up
takes energy
makes time
Love should be nurtured
more than described
I write longing poems
I write desire
which isn’t the same thing
as saying,
as writing,
I love you
This isn’t that
I write about wanting you
to love me
which isn’t a love poem at all
˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜
Just wishin’ and hopin’… I’ve been sitting on this poem for a while. I didn’t want to post it when it was fresh, when it might seem pointed, which I suppose it was at the time. There’s a difference between wanting and doing. For a long time now, I’ve been content with my discontentment, all daydreaming and no doing. This is a poem about knowing the difference. That’s all.
