Feel

This love as I understand it
is big and very simple.
Like the sheen of velvet,
a symphony’s crescendo,
the funniest cartoon.

It exists,
constant and pervasive,
mostly ignored.

You do not want to feel loved.
You have work to do.
You suck, fate wins.
You microwave your dinner,
happy to feel
malnourished,
denied,
and blocked at every turn,
just as you deserve.

One day you feel bored
and love pours in.
Argue with it,
run from it,
try very hard
to prove it wrong.

Once seen, it will follow you,
holding up a mirror
to a better, someday-you.

This love as I understand it
believes in us.
