She fell in love, Mrs. Doldrums

You should tell your mother

you have found someone

She should see you

flushed,

embarrassed,

fumbling with words,

and sweating your palms out.

You should tell her

love does exist

while a little different

from what she has with your father,

that doesn’t allow them

to kiss,

even hold hands.

You should tell her

how light you feel

not bearing alone,

love,

meant for two people…

      Thank you, as always I appreciate. This piece compares two kinds of love. The love the daughter has/is experiencing, and the kind she sees her parents share 🙂
