love’s a broken word –

love’s a broken word – it doesn’t
capture what we mean to say –
so many senses used,
and past that, felt –

a practice of amphiboly,
we never really understand –
like cards we can’t turn up,
but that we’re dealt

we say we love, I know,
but tell me this –
aren’t words that broken
simply
meaningless?

One thought to “love’s a broken word –”

  1. All words confuse, obfuscate, get twisted and misunderstood. Only physical touch of hand and voice and eye speak the truth. And in matters of love these are essential. Absolute physical separation is heartbreaking and no amount of words can bridge the gap. One hopes spirit can.
