Love

If I could
I would never again
cause you pain

If only I were able
I would never
let you down

In a perfect world
I would always know
exactly
what to say or do

You’d never feel jealous
You would never feel betrayed
And the butterflies in your stomach
would be eager

not afraid

No
Love is not a skill I have yet mastered
But I continue to practice everyday
