Thought on Love

 

Love hurts.

It walks out, slamming the door.

The lock turns and it is gone,

Leaving dark grief and regret in its place,

But not before delivering a hammer fall to the heart,

Crushing it open, grinding it down

To diamond dust.

For what purpose, trying again?

 

Stepping out the door,

Pine fresh in the air, I inhale deep.

Cinnamon leaves drift down, a coppery path for my feet.

Sun cups my chin like a mother’s hand, caressing my cheek,

With a faint finger Breeze traces the tip of my nose.

A golden finch flutters by, his song sweetly filters down

To fill the hole in my heart,

Creating more love to spread around.

    No matter who or what walks away from you… you still have love. The fact that you give love to the world is a healing, compassionate, nourishing act.

    Love doesn’t stop when the object of affection isn’t there anymore. Love isn’t any less valid if you felt it for an entity too unevolved or damaged to return it.

    Love, eventually, is really it’s own reward because it makes us more of what we could be. Love is the god within us, human or animal.

    Namaste
