Dear Love

O Love,

I rejoice in being reunited with you

but why are our meetings so fleeting

I feel as though you pick me up

and draw me near your breast

where I taste your boundless joy

and you drop me to the cold concrete below

where I relish in my wounds

but it isn't how it seems

I know this

my thoughts intrude my bliss

and I leave your arms to search for something else

Why do I do this

When I know your embrace is all I need

whatever the reason

I'll trek down this path absent of your light

if only to greet each new encounter

with the grace you've showed me

in your name,
