Poetic limerence may well be true.

But that all depends on how you view the lines written.

Are they fact or fiction?

Everything written is open to misinterpretation.

Poetic limerence does not always mean infatuation.

So it is best to dissect every alliteration, metaphor and rhyme

before you declare undying love because you may be wasting your time.

On the other hand, you could enter into a union sublime.

Poetic limerence implies, written to seduce the mind.

It provides a feast for the eyes.

Always read between the lines.
