SAME OLD LOVE (a series of hay (na)ku poems)

Always

Lead with

I love you.

Same ol’ love

Never gets

“Old.”

Maybe

We tried

Understanding each other.

Instead

We created

Each other’s mythologies

Colorfully

Tall tales

Based on… reality.

But

Reality interferes

With our storytelling.

Storytellers

Tell stories

From their perspectives.

We,

Evidently, were

Definitely no exceptions.

We

Still don’t

Understand each other.

History

And nostalgia

Cloud our vision.

Pride

And prejudice

Control our interactions.

Love

And happiness

Inspire our motives.

Fear

And insecurities

Taint our perspectives.

We

Just keep

Arguing in circles.

How

Do we

Love each other?

Same ol’ love

Starts getting

“Old.”

Close

With I

Still love you.
