Two Love Poems I Have Loved For A Long Time:

Symptoms of True Love
Love is a universal migraine,
A bright stain on the vision
Blotting out reason.

Symptoms of true love
Are leanness, jealousy,
Laggard dawns;

Are omens and nightmares,
Listening for a knock,
Waiting for a song:
For a touch of her fingers
In a darkened room,
For searching look.

Take courage, lover!
Can you endure such grief
At any hand but hers?
~Robert Graves
You Fit Into Me
You fit into me
like a hook into an eye
A fish hook
An open eye
~Margaret Atwood
