Why does love have to be relative?
Why can’t we just say -love!-
and mean just that?
Don’t compare it to theirs
remember it’s just ours.
Don’t label it “romantic, unromantic, lust,
passion, undying, temporary, static, untruthful,
one-sided, unrequited, filler, equal, old, young”
or any other adjective

Don’t say “it needs work”
or it’s at this stage
it’s just where it is
and what it is
and who it is?
