  You could have a big dipper   

a sad truth you can learn about love is that love is not enough by Mark Danowsky

The morning after another night that begins under the pretext of our last

I write a list of what I want in a relationship

In the list I list everything that has nothing to do with love

or that is what I tell myself

On the list of what is not love

I tell myself I am looking for a version of myself

If you were to review the list I hope you would say

all of this adds up to love
