A Letter to Life from Love

Life,

 

I wonder what it would be like to be filled with love.

With nothing more than the feeling, I get when I look up above.

Those stars, they are a part of you and not apart from you.

Maybe I’ll feel like that with someone, but who?

Or perhaps it’s not a thing of the flesh

 

But a thing of the stars.

 

 

All of them one thing but yet so sparse.

 

I wish I could write you perfection.

 

Maybe I would be able to mention

 

How much pain you cause me

 

And simultaneously, having you is lovely.

 

But I don't want you without him and

 

All I want to say is “just love me.”

 

Yes, I did say the stars were sufficient.

 

But in the light of the day, I cannot see them.

 

So Life, throw me a lifeline.

 

Let him know it would all mean nothing without me

 

For you are nothing without love.

 

And I am just that. I am Love.

 

 

Alexia Love Taylor
