#TBT = Throwback Thursday! — I can’t help but love you

I can’t help but love you

I can’t help it
I can’t help but love you
Or should I say I am deeply in love with the art you create
Would that be more accurate
But…
I can’t help it
I can’t help but love you
To think of you
The creative
Wonderful
Introspective
Social
You
Imagining the sound of your voice
The tone and tenor of your song
Is there anything you can’t do?
I feel your power
Your sweet artist soul
Waging war with mediocrity
And yet I don’t even know you
Not really
I read these lines online
Trying to find a way into your mind
Hoping to find the key
The key to hold you
Wanting to be where you are
But glad you are so far away
So unreachable
So untouchable
And yet…
So loveable
I can’t help it.
I can’t help but love you

This poem was mostly about a poet who came to perform from out of state and violinist that featured at a local event but was also about pretty much anyone whose art I appreciated.
