CONFUSION OF LOVE


You love me
There's no doubt
But it's love
That keeps me wondering

For in love
there is no fairness.

So many...
are the rules.
So many...
are the ways.

And always
one keeps questioning.

Is their love
as desired...
Is their love
as expressed...

Love's problem
no clarity...
Always lost
amid the confusion.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
