Love, Love, Love Again

13 Feb

by Nancy Scott

(Acrostics are poems where the first letter of each line spells out a word.  So, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day . . .)

Let go of disbelief and myth.
Only fools seek perfection.
Varied will be the times and privileges but
Everyone gets the chance at love.
 
Listen and show that we’ve heard.
Otherwise, vows are voids.
Value such work.
Engage the heart.
 
Late at night I hold
Only your voice and this phone–
Vibrating tongues that will never meet
Enchant anyway.
