Writing About Love

I decided to focus on the language in amateur love poems. The language that is used is often so vague that in the author’s attempt to describe love, they rely primarily, or in some cases solely, on cliches. Because they’re not saying anything new or interesting, I have a hard time believing that these people have ever  actually been in love, and in that way they’re being unreliable. Its very easy to do, so I provided several examples.
