In Praise of Adverbs

Why would we want to remove the adverbs from our poetry?

I want you to love me

Deeply

Exuberantly

Joyously

 

I want your reckless

love

I want you to devour

me.

 

I want you famished for my flesh-

Longing for my skin-

Aching for my touch

I want you wrapped

around me

enfolded in me

so that we do not know where one

ends and the other begins

So that we are both

One.

 

I love you

Religiously

I want you to want all of me

Eternally.
