A Poet’s Lament


Love is what we crave,

love is what we lose,

love is what we can’t seem to keep.

It is the essence of our being, the climax

of our writing but also the downfall.

We write of a love we desire,

one we fantasize as our happily ever after,

we lose that love for devoting too much.

We try with all our might to keep it grasped

but it slips through our fingers like smoke.

And the cycle begins again;

craving, having, losing, gone.

And yet, we tread on by writing it

again and again,

never losing hope to finally acquire

that sweet, sweet love

we so desperately desire.
