LOVE'S REQUIEM

LOVEíS REQUIEM

 

It hits you unexpectedly,

catches you unawares,

throwing you into a clearing

in a very dense wood,

where the grass is damp

and gets between your toes.

 

You want to reach out and retrieve

the passion that evaporated into oblivion

somewhat puzzled by when it finally

surrendered to the unavoidable truth

that not an ounce of chemistry remains,

there is no ripple in the veins.

 

A sad, heavy heart accepts the situation,

knowing once itís gone, it can never be

rediscovered, no matter where you look,

better that defeat is accepted, and you  

are set free to love again,

should you find the courage.

 

Pleading, distressed eyes,

make you weep, for confusion

and disbelief are yours,

punishing you for something

that was unavoidable,

but final.
