    Gave Up On Love And Didn't Realize It

    I gave up on love and didn't realize it. Must have happened long ago. I just want to break even between feeling indifferent and peaceful. Love won't grow its roots and shoot upwards. I just want to have level emotional field. Something recognizable that doesn't cause an...
