Loving Is Hard Work

Vintage Words


Go at love face front

arms at the wide,

heart open, vulnerable. 

The work begins with

a tough skin, heart off

the sleeve, reality and

dreams attached to sweat

and words.


Go at affection with

expectations of return 

two-fold, and if absent,

the work begins. Kindly

insist on how you want

affection demonstrated. 

Let examples rolls off

like rainwater words.


Go in with eyes on every

emotion. From you, compliments,

from  the beloved compliments.

If no praises, the work is to

locate the words.


Work hard to find those sincere

gifts. They are nice, dictated by

occasions, but not the present

need since nothing can replace or

become a valuable enough substitute

for the words.
