love heart

Two curves and two straight lines

Meeting in a kiss

That melts them together

Into something that is both them and not-them.

Gently closing into existence the space inside

That is both a vessel

And soft dark earth.

This is ours to farm and fill;

It will be what we make it.

This was written at my creative writing group. It was the day after Valentine’s and so our prompt was a love heart. The emotional side of things felt like too much for me to get into that morning, so I went with a rather literal idea for this poem.
