Wanting to Be With You by Jackie Chou

If you are a disease

I shall seek no immunity

but cherish every symptom

every ounce of pain


If you are a defect

I shall be a flawed diamond

eager to shine

despite my black center


If you are a missing piece

I shall be a crescent moon

delighting in my deficiency


If you are distance

I shall be a lost traveller

never arriving my destination


If you are misery

I shall be clinically depressed

moping and crying all day


If you are death

I shall be terminally ill

kissing and embracing the Grim Reaper

counting down the days

 Cupid's Arrow

This exquisite Anthology, a collection of sublime poems and prose, tells of the essence of love, as music to the ears and the stirring to our hearts.  From “Love at First Sight,” to “Love Never Dies,” every facet of love is gloriously depicted in the many lovely chapters given to us from these gifted poets.

Come, fall in love, remember the taste of it, the feel of it within.  Come cry a few tears, then rejoice its victories.

Love.” conquers all.

Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of A Soul Passenger
