something i told someone, in free verse poem form
The other day, someone told me love was worthless.
I asked , What makes you say that?
He replied that because of someone, somone he must have cared about, that is what they taught him.
Love isn't like it is in books, he said, it's a lie.
Well, I said maybe their not totally wrong.
I said, meaning it from the bottom of my heart. I had lost a love too, but that didn't mean I was going to give up. Not by a long shot, so I did what I knew would change his mind.
And it worked.
