love

i remember
i recall
when i fell
in love
for the first time
it wasn’t love
it was an obsession
i was obsessed
a child
with a new toy
carrying it
tightly
always
everywhere
i smothered it
mothered it
with affection
just like
a child
with a new toy
i didn’t know love then
didn’t comprehend it
couldn’t
comprehend it
it was something
i had never tasted
seen
realized

i may have
an inkling
now
but now
i know
i don’t
you don’t
one doesn’t
need
anything
or want
anything
when in love
when in love
one has it
all
complete
with a
smile
always

:)
