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

now 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.
