I am in love with you
in the way that children
are in love:
incompletely, sporadically,
self-consciously.

you appear to me
as every adult appears
to a child:
faultless, omniscient,
unendingly generous and honest
and kind.

and, as must happen
to every child,
I will lose my god:
the slightest human error
will cause you to
fall
how extremely lazy of me

This is such a wonderful poem! Even though it wasn't very long, it was powerful and I loved it! Anna squee

Wow....  this is phenomenal! ... I have few words or feedback that would do this justice. This has left me pretty speechless.
But I have to say putting people on pedestals and falling in love does little else but disappoint.
you captured growing up (in love or in anything) perfectly!

*tear rolls down cheek* .. literally. 

This reminds me of a certain lady whom i have lost many of my tears over. 

It is a very lovely poem though. :)

sums it up perfectly, I broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years last week and this pretty much encapsulates what I'm feeling. thank you for this.
