    higher

    love is meticulous
    when it chooses
    immaculate
    over particulars

    perfection is an art
    for worst part an
    amulet
    it eventually runs out of
    fabulous

    head over heal is
    a stimulus
    the need to extrapolate accumulus
    to encapsulate desire
    to all not just the privileged
    it is always for hire
    is an acquire to urk or pire.
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Hi cacian,

    Thanks for the new poem. Not sure about the last verse though:

    "is an acquire to urk or pire."
    "You can always find something better than death."
    Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, The Bremen Town Musicians

    An interesting poem to parse: I'm thinking "to be become angered or worse" (pire, Fr.) for the last line as an interpretation, perhaps.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    Hello there Danik and thank you for reading.
    I mispelled:

    irk and not urk from irksome

    pire means worse
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly
