the poetry


these elements of love 

often unwanted. unwarranted. unnecessary
until it comes from the right person

makes me warm and tingly in all the right places
but only when it's yours

disguised and abused by the worst of them
beautifully wrapped in the best of them

hard to find, the easiest to lose
so we do what we must to maintain it

what we all want to surround ourselves with
how it feels to be with you 

scales typically tipped between the give and take 
until we find perfect balance with another

appreciated both in private and in public 
the important thing is that it's heard

so elementary
these basic
elements of love

what are your seven wonders of love? leave your answer in the comments below!
