Better to have never loved than to have loved and lost

Passing On

At the end of anything great or even the end of things not so great, we ultimately lament all that we have lost. It is human nature to divine meaning in the abyss of self and any failure no matter how minute, can seem catastrophic. It is with heavy hearts we seek to paste over the wounds concealed there. To quickly pass on to the next thing before time catches us in its grip and allows us to realize the despair of our failures. What so enterprising and majestic the Sun rising is and it gives us hope with it’s warmth and a new day that somehow all will be ok. But do we ever think that a love worth having isn’t meant to be recovered from. We find solace and liberation, and excuse in anger. It allows us strength in the absurd to carry forward as we harbor mortal wounds on our journey. We slight the moon, hiding in our shadows pulling us forward like the tide as the sun turns its back to us. It gives us will when there is none to carry on bleeding from our souls. It does not fill us with the false hope of healing an unhealable wound. It simply lets us know that sometimes it’s ok to love something that might not love you back.
