Love: A Working Definition

It’s
Accidental and imperfect, struck by
Glimpses of heaven
Amid the cross-outs and blotches
And words that don’t quite fit.
It’s
Interrupted and unfinished
And totally predictable,
Broken
And overwhelmingly full.
It’s
Abrupt and simple,
Stretched and twisted by complications that
Liberate
The most solidly planted feet.
It’s a waking dream, a living nightmare,
Incurable and unfathomable;
Bittersweet, and sometimes just bitter—at times,
Wholly and perfectly,
Heart-wrenchingly
Sweet.
