off your knuckles
i can see how that mistake might be made
At first I thought it was abuse because you tend to write darker poetry and poetry in general seems to be dark, but I'm a positive person on occasion so I thought perhaps it was about someone getting into a fight to defend their lover's honor and then the lover cleans them up after.
Or the scrubbing love off of the knuckle could of course mean the abused lover is sitting there trying to see love where there is violence. lol. poetry with multiple meanings that are total opposites :I
There's no insight at all in this.
It's just 2 meaningless sentences put together.
How is this, in any way, a poem?
It doesn't say that at all. All it says are "knuckkles" and "love".
What a wild assumption
Just for the ease of explaining this, lets assume the narrator is a woman and the "you" is a man. The woman is scrubbing love off of his knuckles - from this we can assume that they are probably lovers. Now why would a man have love on his knuckles? Why would they need to be scrubbed (cleaned)? An act of love that could get you an injured/dirty hand (from blood) could be punching someone in the face for insulting yo' gurl. Thus the wife/girlfriend cleans up her man after whatever fight may have ensued.
If you still can't figure it out, I'm sorry, poetry probably isn't your thing then. lol.
Umm, it's funny you accuse ME of knowing nothing about poetry, someone who is an actual poet, while you're here trying to find depth (and failing at your attempts to) in this poem a kindergartner could honestly write.
What makes it worse is that it doesn't even have proper punctuation and grammar.
My little sister could have written this, and have written more meaning into the poem too.
It is you that does not know anything about poetry.
Have fun trying to find mean in childish quips and limmericks, subjects that obviously fit your tastes more.
I'm sorry if my replies came off as rude or sarcastic, I mean the things (that could be seen as rude) I say in jest or light and friendly humor. I wasn't trying to initiate a pissing contest. lol.
