poem for those who won't talk about love until it follows them back
I know that there's enough of us in the world
to find love a thousand times over
it's not like it runs out
its not like its unrecyclable
i know that if we all just looked at one another, face to face,
for just a couple of seconds
a long minute perhaps
we'd find someone perfect for us.
How brilliant that would be, I'm sure.

A matched gaze for all,
could leave the whole world kind.

It's a damn shame then
that I hate making eye contact
