rules about love from a naive mind

one)
love is a
many pronged creature

it doesn’t know
it’s own name

it is homeless
even if you build walls around it

it is afraid of you
it has experienced
this world

if you try
to call out to it

it will cock
it’s head
at you

like the
lost thing
it is

it’s exterior
of wet soap
a greased pig

it cannot clean you

do not
chase
after
it

no matter
how delicious

it does
not
want
to be
captured

it does
not
want
to capture

two)
there are
copycat manifestations

like
poisonous mushrooms

they will
walk it’s walk

display
it’s features

you will taste
something
wrong of them

you will
ignore it

it will
slowly
kill you

like alcoholism

you will
relish
every drop
of sweat

it rings
itself out
to produce

quenching
your thirst
for it

three)
fools
will try
to cage it

they believe
it owes them
something

they are
wrong

instead:
make a
spot up
for it

send out
the RSVP

don’t expect
or
fixate
on it

don’t read
too much
into it
(you will)

patiently
wait
for it
to
stumble
home

snuggle in
next to you

only

if it
so chooses.
