Lockdown Lyricism: "Lack"

From a series of poems I penned during the early months of the pandemic.

I don't know love.

So much so,

I may have already

Been on the receiving end

Of someone else's

And simply didn't

Recognise it.

I don't know love.

So much so,

I don't know how to give it,

Or feel it,

Or understand it,

Or believe that

I deserve it.

I don't know love.

So much so,

I could not rightly say

If appreciation,


Or lustful intoxication

Come anywhere close

To approximating

The true


I don't know love.

But I know I'd like to meet it.
