LET'S CALL IT LOVE


Call it
Love is what we felt
The way
You laughed at me
"You're so defensive"
You think I would not be?
When you tell me I am
No good
You shake your head
And say it would be
Ridiculous, and that laugh
As if it couldn't be helped
"I love her"
Right now, she
Does not deserve it
Love her when she's good
No one
One other person loves her
Category: unwanted
Until later
Until years
Past, passed
What was healthy
What would have made us
Love her, me
Restraint, he whispered
Leaning over her
Pushing her cradle
Restraint, he pulled
Her small finger
Slipping out from a hungry mouth
What will you feed me instead?

I'll love you later
