True Love Exposed...

True love

Knows no boundaries

And, thus, must never be restricted

To the subtleties

And niceties

Of all things sweet and tender.

True love

Must also be expressed

Through the pain, torment

And passionate convulsions

Its frenzied course assaults

Upon mind and body

Only then

When ecstasies and agonies

Are allowed to coexist

Can true love be found.

Such is this

I lay before you

My Ode To True Love.

My love for you

Is as gushing

As a burst abscess

As intense

As the agony

From a gangrenous toe

And as teasingly


As a bucket of vomit

On a trampoline.


Through all of this

And more


That you

Are truly loved.
