I'm Not A Love Poet

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 16:42 -- leum11

I was born on July 6th, 1999

That makes me a cancer.

I don’t know what that means,

But about a week before I met you

I remember seeing a post on Facebook that a Cancers significant other is

Capricorn.

Now, According to google

“Capricorn and Cancer are opposite signs in astrology;

Compatibility between opposites is often good as they provide a special balance of qualities, Each offering something the other lacks.

In this case,

Cancer is a deeply emotional and intuitive sign,

Whereas Capricorn is cool, practical and logical.”

What the fuck/

Who the fuck

Is a Capricorn?

A Capricorn is someone born between December 22nd-January 19th

When I met you, I didn’t know when your birthday was

But come to find out, It’s December 24th, Christmas Eve

God Damn you’re a Christmas miracle,

And

God Damn was google right when it said that Cancers are deeply emotional,

That explains why

I’m writing this poem about you,

That explains why, within a month

I was the first to say “I love you”

Even when you said you wanted to take things slow

It’s been a month

And I still say, “I love you” all time

Even when all you say is,

“I know, I really like you too.”

God Damn I swear I’m not a love poet,

It’s just you.

This poem was charged with the realistic feelings of ever y person that sees that one special person and instantly falls in love. Their heart feels like an anvil while at the same time wanting to stand on a table an proclaim to the world how they feel. Very well written and very relatable to the audience.
