    It’s like I have this infection...It’s like I might get rejected...I hope I can love you

    The subject of this poem sounds like a needy person who is addicted ('infection') to someone who doesn't want them...perhaps because of their obsessive neediness...I've been there, been rejected many times, felt stupid later...i think real love is when it is symbiotic (mutual need, mutual vulnerability, mutual honesty, mutual respect, mutual desire for sex and affection) ...this is an honest're should be spelled your...if read aloud the poem doesn't flow as well as it could...

    Sorry, Seema, didn't read the poem, have a lot going on...i like brevity, i'm working on the concept myself...i don't want a battle of life, but Jesus peace...don't mean to sound preachy, just practical. Best wishes in all you do (John 15, the key for me) ...stay inspired!


    jesus is the way
    go with him
    life is okay

    jesus is the truth
    like naomi and ruth

    jesus is the life
    peaceful purpose
    less conflict, strife

    embrace these three
    and him
    happy, content
    you will be

    Nice to read a positive poem, too many dreary, sad poems out there. Thanks.
