Avatar Author: Abby (LoA) Gonna miss you guys so much. My 'official/professional' email is: in case anyone wants to keep in touch! Read Bio

I’m still stuck in December, writing
Twelve instead of two.

Eight months or ten aren’t different
When it’s ten or eight with you.

Snow or no snow?
Warmth or cold?

Clocks can be turned back I’m sure

If I’m rich, I’m rich in love
I don’t care if I’m poor.

I’m not much just to look at,
Or to talk to or to hold.

But if the deal involves your love
Then easily I’m sold.

    Love does make the world go ‘round, doesn’t it?

    The sentiment is 5 pencil worthy by itself. I enjoy sweet poems most of all. There’s more than enough reasons to write positively, and it’s far harder to do, imo, due to the vulnerability of it all. I appreciate the risk you took in doing so.

    Cheers to you both =) I’m not a big fan of this piece, it was the sentiment behind it that’s important to me.

    Really like the feeling in this piece, and the flow as well

    it sort of reminds me of action poetry, you might be interested:

    it’s a very flowy, brief but packs a punch style

    This is a good poem to reread….repeatedly.
    Ha, I know I sure did.
    You, dear Abby, may not be a ‘big fan of this piece’, but this piece is a big part of you – who you were in the moment of writing it. Therefore it is etched in your time line, and epic in of itself.
