No Noun Required

Some days, I am in love.
Not with hes or shes,
Nor any distinct or unremarkable, tangible dream.

Love need not abide
in the sight of a person,
Nor the smell of a place.
It need not even dwell
in the feel of an item running
through lotioned fingers
or beneath calloused heels.

No, love need not
be defined in nouns
scattered throughout one's visual plane.

It just exists;
without rhyme or reason
without subject or destination.
Both without and within
when it comes to my soul.

Love needs not my recognition
nor my peace of mind
for its existence.
But today, thankfully
I can see Love abiding in me
And He has shown me abiding in Him.
