The Dreaming Cantos 20: Psychology of Luv


People love to fall
in love, for reasons many
misunderstand. It’s never

romantic paradise
nor sexual kingdom come
we’re crazy for—not even

the love of another lover.
It’s license to love one’s self
because we’re loved by another.

~Son Rivers 2006

I hate the word luv. It's too cutesy to be taken seriously, unless you're eleven.

And using the abbreviation "luv" is mature? Seriously though, loved the canto. You use the line breaks really well to deepen the meaning, rather than just as a form to fill with words. Thanks for sharing it!
