Love Poem: Not Yet
Angela Douglas Avatar
Written by: Angela Douglas

Not Yet

I do not love you
I love possibilities
Abstracts over absolutes
Who we might be
who we could be
if certain variables
would happen to be true
If in your presence 
I found this veil
obstructing my vision
lifted from my eyes
able to see 
colors once again
bold and bright
instead of muted hues
If we were to discover
synchronicity of
our energy in
pursuing our endeavors 
If not only my words
but the heart beating 
behind them mattered to you
I don’t seek perfection
but maybe you do
Perhaps that’s the problem
I don’t love you
Not yet
