“I Love You”

You Know What Sucks More Than Bad Poetry?

Love Poems.




Should I profess our love in words?

To quantify all its worth —
Can you hold between the stars?
Or truly mend a broken heart?

These are not measures one can count
They are the awe lost in our mouth —
The greatest figures, not figured out.

Where does love hide when not spoken?

Upon a smile, cracked, unbroken.
Or in the kiss that steals your heart.
But I know how kisses part —

Should ours part into a shout,
Before it lashes from our mouths —
I’ll cleft my tongue to stop it cold!

For words of love, so words of woe.

–Jonathan Renfield
