In an Instant
I am able to love.
I do so deeply, passionately, & without fear.
Yet I do not know if it lasts for long,
Before I tire. & want to move on.
Love is good,
But when it goes bad, instantly it makes me sad, mad, &
Glad. that I can get up and go.
Get up and experience something fresh & bright.
Something that moves me towards the light.
I get to dream and hope again.
I get to imagine what's to come.
Instead of lulled into what's been done.
And it daunts on me. Is it me?
Am I the one?
Who can't stay long because I fear what's wrong.
Is it me?
Those words l linger in my thoughts.
When it gets tough do I run?
Does everything end?
An inquisitive mind pushes me around.
Forces me to confront the verity of us.
The things we do, the words we say, the ways we love.
& Then my presumptions prevail.
Our love fails, It begins to decay.
& I just can't stay.
