(Poems) – to her, to me – 80 words

to her, love was a word

it was what you said to get someone to stay

it was a warmth you could take off and throw away

just to make room for another.

to me, love was everything

it was the hope that got me out of bed every day

it was the feeling that rooted beneath my skin, in my bones

it was something I couldn’t tear out if I tried.

and, yes, because of that—

what happened was inevitable.
