Assume Love

If we assume Love The errant thought The thought-less comment Appear in their true light   If we assume Love We needn’t be burdened by what if or slippery slopes or writing on the wall   If we do assume Love We begin in kindness and travel enveloped An era shared Greater than the sum of two

Just a perfect poem, really. Very hard for me to critique anything here. The subject is presented also maybe more poignant for me because I am dealing with learning to love someone in a long-distance relationship, and all the fears of this person who I am involved with. Sorry it's not a 'real' critique, but more commentary. Thanks, Regis

Assume Love is an eye catching title for this very nice read. Like the way you started each stanza with If we do assume can and does conquer all.......and I like the era shared greater than the sum of two.........good job......thanks for posting, hope all is well with you and yours, God Bless, Claire

Ken, If poems were to be judged strictly on content, I'd rank this pretty high. And there are some nice touches, such as the rhyme in "errant" and "comment." But we have that elusive thing, the intangible, which can try, with varying measures of success, to define. The definition not ready to hand, I can only tell you that I do not find that "intangible" in this poem. Though I do appreciate the content and some of the nice executions in expression you made. My best to you, Mark
