For A Girl In A Book

Kim, composite of all my loves,
less real than most, more real than all;
of my making, all the good and
some of the bad, yet of yourself;
sole, unique, strong, alone,
whole, independent, one: yet mine
in that you cannot be unfaithful.

Great poem. Love poem written in a unique style. Short and beautiful. Enjoyed the emotion of love in it.
'yet of yourself; sole, unique, strong, alone, whole, independent, one: yet mine in that you cannot be unfaithful.' - Wonderful thoughts!
A real unique lovely written poem...I like it
Cleverly written & nice poem.
Precise and perfect poem, how we all create and are subjected by that which we love.
