Discover Love Again


You had a love
It made you happy
But it’s ended — now you say

That you expected
This betrayal
From a woman anyway

You’re obsessed now
Which of you was at fault

Could it be
That savor’d lost its salt?

Could it be
No matter how
Hard we try to force

In fluid dance
It will pursue its natural course?

If we had
We’d ever loved within a room

For lying down
Or even breathing
There would be no room!

Imagine if
Your first bad crush
Were all you’d ever had in life

No precedent
Saddled as husband or as wife

From beyond much
You know that, in a simple word

A life spent yoked
Had been a joke
Considerably sadder than absurd

Now love has come
And then love has
Got up and flown away, well then

Take what you’ve learned
The wisdoms earned
And go discover love again
