You Love

You Love

A Poem by Zach

Poem about the youthfulness and foolishness of young lovers.

  • You love, however, hold your tongue,
    For you will not hold my heart.
    You pretend love in a way,
    Which comes natural, yet unbeknownst to you.
    I beseech you to withdraw from this state,
    Though I think this, an untimely request.
    The arrogance of such adolescent behavior,
    Is remarkable if only in its nature,
    And is unlikely to change upon further adamancy.
    Thus, I propose a valediction of sorts,
    Time allotted to fill vacant thoughts,
    And room provided for punctual growth.

This is an extremely well written poem. There is a lot of depth that can be drawn upon and each time I read through it, I find another layer of meaning. I think it speaks to the young lover who either doesn't realize or doesn't want to realize the consequences of their actions, of pretending to love or pretending to be something they are not.

"I beseech you to withdraw from this state,
Though I think this, an untimely request."

Definitely my favorite two lines of this poem. It speaks to the youthfulness that the poem is aimed at - an untimely request - that it will take age to correct.
