the thing about (our) love is

the thing about (our) love is
that it has lived up to &
surpassed all the hype.
the thing about (our) love is
that it has outweighed issues
from prior disappointments.
the thing about (our) love is
that it has turned a cynic
into a sentimental sap.
the thing about (our) love is
that it has made life infinitely better
because we brave it together.

  1. I love the hope here, Samantha. A very uplifting poem. And I also really like the way you use parentheses to set off “our.” In that way, you describe love as it is in general, and also how it applies to the specific love you have. Well done, my friend!
