I love.

And so do you,

but let’s not try to love each other.

It was never going to work.

There are plenty of times
We find a way
and hope that moments turn to years
but this is not
a way to say
That we will lose all of our fears.

There are looks
ones that we give each other
looks that go right down through walls
and into hearts and seize them.
Looks that stir us to feeling
something other than despair.

I know that words don’t go away
after they’ve been said
even if we wish to play
long after words are dead.

Now is not the time to cling
to what was never real
Let’s not say that it was love
when we are dead and gone.
