A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

Love Poem
I slipped you into my folder
concussed heart
envelopes love
cuddling with hope
you will file me into your system
as well
I can't remember where I am
but feel I have known you
before, during and after
the fall
it's worth the risk
to fall again and again
I'm sure I know you
I'm sure.

Now that is a love poem! Yes fall again and again, it’s always worth it in my opinion. Love and all the feelings that come Witt it even the insecurities and potential loss… it’s worth it. Wonderful writing, so much energy in this!

So beautiful... so so beautiful... glad I came across this one, writing love on your own style, its essence, its powers, its feelings and closeness, the fears, the insecurities... that may came across . I love it more that it's only one verse. just as it should be. it's like, take it as it is or simply do not...

Speaks to me of the trust in falling, the faith....our assurance to self that we know them...sometimes we land in the right place and sometimes we die from the fall.

Makes me think of my uncle. He has alzhimers but still remembers my aunt ( just not always her name).

If you believe in a one true soulmate, these beautiful words make perfect sense. A wonderful tribute to that most baffling of all emotions: Love. Well written, Jacob.

A good solid work in prose, I especially liked, "I can't remember where I am
but feel I have known you
before, during and after
the fall"
