This Love – A Collaboration with Kricket’s Ramblings

I teamed up recently with Kricket’s Ramblings on a collaboration. The result is a poem called “This Love.”

When we began, we decided on turning this collaboration into a debate on whether love itself is a real “thing” or simply some chemical reaction. It turned into a poetic conversation/debate that could have carried on even longer than it did. In the end, I’m very happy with how Kricket and I were able to create not only a disagreement but a conversation within our (as we referred to it) concocted-collab. Sure, we may have gotten a bit long-winded but the debate required that we do enough back and forth that we could thoroughly debate the topic. Hope you enjoy!

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. Yes it became long but it is worth it.

    On another note, You ache and bruise because you “fall” in love 🙂

  2. It was brilliant!!!! Loved the debate, but I now know, love is not mythical, it is work, but it has many rewards. It is only tarnish, by those whose definition of it, is anything, but pure.

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed. And from someone who tends to delve deep into discussions…it wasn’t *that* long 😉

  4. Chemical reactions are what we are all made of. We are all walking, talking sacks of chemical reactions. So be it, love is as well. ;^}

  5. Sometimes it takes a while to say all that needs to be said. I enjoyed the “debate” immensely!

  6. I absolutely “Love”it! It turned out great, even if it gets a bit long winded in certain places. Sometimes, one must lengthen their breath to finish making their point.. tee-hee Thank you for the opportunity John.
