Fill In the Blank

When your lovers name
Becomes a noun
You know

Things are extreme
One way or another

The selflessness
That comes from the thought

"Oh, don't you wish everyone had
had an insert lovers name here "

And even if it fits in a different
Dark
Old
Overwhelming spot.

It's something.

By any scale we've come to develop.

Love can only be categorized
By those
In it.
