September 2nd

“Fighting Love” a poem from book 1 on this special day in September. ❤

Today is a special day for me. A bittersweet memory. Can you guess what it is? If you’ve read my book, you might know 😉

In the meantime, here is a poem by me:

Fighting Love

I will work for this love.

This love,

which is deeper than obsession

or infatuation.

My love is not contingent on

your beauty, my darling,

though beauty you have,

and that, abundantly.

No, my love is not conditional

on circumstance nor feeling;

I will love you forever.

For this love

is a working love,

a fighting love,

an imperfect, messy love

in a real world.

It is not based on a perfect,

aesthetic picture.

No, my love for you goes deep,

well down to the soul. ♥
