The Love Vow
When You Choose to Love a Poet
Please understand that you are not the subject of my poetry,
but the center of all my attention.
I don’t record the intimate details of our conversations in my notebook,
but choose to clutter my head with the words
you scatter ever so carefully around me.
And what appears on paper
are only the renderings and ramblings of a romantic doodler.
