Origin of Love

This piece is a creative response to ‘Origin of Tears’, a poem from Factory of Tears by Valzhyna Mort. I kept to the style of the original poem as much as I could, but changed the subject matter to one that is more personal to me.



this is when

your life is split into two

when self is found

only in their company


do you feel the world dividing?

do you hear the poets thriving?



this is when

half your soul belongs to another



Thanks for reading.
