A Feeling You Cannot Ignore


A funny yet peculiar term,

That we as humans sometimes

Fail to understand but cannot ignore.

Like a papercut on the tip of your finger,

You fail to realize it is there.

That is until you notice, the essence of life

oozing from your delicately knitted skin.

Falling in love is a magical feeling but

the idea of the fall should never be questioned.

To love is to find beauty in what the world diminishes and calls ugly.

Even when strangers point their fingers and snicker,

Because true love is what some people call

Love above the label.
