This Is Not A Love Poem

This is not a love poem no way
you need big words for that
like “luminous” and “eternity”
you need lots of serious rhyme
or at least iambic pentameter
you need merciless stars
deserts on moonless nights
foamy surf on gusty beaches
you needed to get smashed
into such tiny fragments
you can only use the small i
when you write 
i love you

  1. You said that this poem is not about love. So I didn't understand the poem, so I read it almost 10 times. At last I got it but I think it's about LOVE.
