HALF N HALF
One of the old photos, fixed to the wood,
In my living room, it's stare is good,
Its aura is benign, it speaks of love,
I just smile and nod, cause i'll have none of
Its quiet verbose boast, in telling,
There is too much abstracting,
In its sublime stating,
I prefer what i've read of love;
Patient, kind, and responsible, that's love;
See why i smile,
And don't reply,
If he is my better half
Pity me! left, with the worst half

  6. Love is what you need in the moment, warmth, compassion, grace, desire... at the end of the day, no one wants to be left with the worst half.
