Is There Some Recognition?

Written for:  Poetic Asides #642 - Love Poem

"For this week's prompt, write a love poem. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, romantic love poems make a lot of sense, and yes, feel encouraged to write those if you feel so inclined. But love is more complicated than that. There's also love between family, friends, and a universal love. 

Love can be happy, sad, mad, apathetic, and so on. Write your "love" poem in whatever fashion you wish today."

I hear no sarcasm
all day.  You no
longer make me
laugh.  Your side
of the bed is filled
by puppy.  Dementia
is eating up all 
those witticisms,
reading ability,
names.  I visit 
you, tell you
I love you, 
and can only
hope some part
of you hears me.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
