Love Poems 

Nikki Giovanni

“english isn't a good language
to express emotion through
mostly i imagine because people
try to speak english instead
of trying to speak through it.”


“we used to talk all night
and do things alone together
and i’ve begun
(as a reaction to a feeling)
to balance
the pleasure of loneliness
against the pain
of loving you”
