CAN YOU WRITE ABOUT LOVE?

113

Death is a preferable subject
For a poet died of writing about love
These diseases, suicides, war, religions

Have to be put into perspective
Why? Because love turns
Literature into a poor resurrection
Of dead poets, it’s better they stayed dead

To be honest, Death teaches us immortality
Reuniting with our parents who
Didn’t have the courage to face
Their psychologically flawed relationships

Worse than unhappy, to be indifferent
I’d prefer to die honestly, though
It just so happens I forget
For the sake of lyrical exercise

What I once considered so important
To summon a single moment I felt
Completely loved, it’s that absence
That makes Death a literal personal subject.

  1. Beautiful pictures, beautiful poetry. And that Jellyfish in the right hand column, can render a grown man incapicated, instantly howling in pain. I’ve seen it happen and had to drag one of my spear fishing friends on to a barnacle covered rock, so out of his hind was he.
