To turn, to love

Standard

You know what it feels like

To imagine a large idea

In your mind

And feel it

Deflate into nothing

On the page

 ~

You know what it feels like

To love without qualifications

Without rules

Without compunction

 ~

You know what it feels like

To read a poet who captures

That turn of phrase so well

You are jealous

~

And still. You know what it feels

Like to not be able to take the

Idea that sears into you

That breaks

You and makes you

 ~

The unquestionable love

Puts you back together

Making it alright that

You cannot

Turn the phrase

Toward Life
