Love Is Love – Visual Poem – Spoken Word Poetry – Jennifer Juan


Being with her was like my first time in
a bar. I knew I could be there, I knew I should be there, my soul screeched at the
thought of leaving, yet, I checked my ID and my guilt and questioned myself a
million times. I felt young in the bar, in her arms like I hadn’t been alive and
was delivered to the planet just that second. Everyone around me seemed to know
what to do I felt young. I felt her. Soft,
significant. She was like strawberry laces. Sweet. Wrapped all over me. I forgot
my name and said hers instead. Over and over. I wasn’t even sure if I was alive
anymore, or if I was hanging in heaven, kneeling for
Nirvana. I looked up to her light laughter, breathless as she bent down to
kiss my glossy lips and hold me in her arms,
back at the bar, as I got drunk on her.
