Signs of Love Poetry

Symptoms of Love

Love is a universal migraine,

A bright stain on the vision

Blotting out reason.



Symptoms of true love

Are leanness, jealousy,

Laggard dawns;



Are omens and nightmares-

Listening for a knock,

Waiting for a sign:



For a touch of her fingers

In a darkened room,

For a searching look.



Take courage, lover!

Could you endure such grief

At any hands but hers?

Robert Graves
