Love is a word.

Love is a word.

Stop throwing it at me.

Eliza Doolittle demanded

that your feelings

Show.

Why is it that is too much to ask

of the men I know?

If you make plans,

keep them.

If you disagree,

don’t argue with me.

Don’t kick me when I’m down,

so to speak;

mourning is not your time

of opportunity.

Stop telling me about my

perfect gifts

and thoughtfulness;

think up some of your own.

Better yet,

give of  yourself

so I may cherish

you

and your spirit:

reassurance,

laughter,

care and affection–

simple things

show

you know me

and understand

Love.

      Well, kind of a vent/rant, and those just… flow sometimes. Glad it wasn’t taken as towards all men; I was concerned about that but it was meant for specific males, I hope that was clear.
      Happy week, David.

    Love is a choice we make, but too often it becomes a weapon we use on others

    Hmmm, true pacwp.
    Maybe that is why I feel so weary, beaten with that weapon as I was.
    Thank you,
