Love has been something that came so easily, for me to do;
However, something that I have found being returned, by so very few.
It at times seems to be a game that requires many risks…that requires leaps and bounds;
Leaving so many echoes in my heart, which are sad, sweet, and profound.
I, at times, wander around, looking, feeling, and seeking…..
For someone wanting of the love that I possess, that is from my heart…leaking.
The moments that I invest with my body, soul, and mind;
Seem to always be reciprocated with acts and emotions that are so unkind.
Though bruised and beaten, my heart refuses to get jaded or frozen;
Despite all of the loss, it strives on to find the one that was of it, chosen.
I admit, each time, there is a wall that needs to be broken through;
This wall so easily comes down, never thick…easy to win over on cue.
Being like a game of tug-o-war in life;
Causing so much happiness….yet so much strife…
Love is such a powerful force;
Causing more good than bad…when focused, it is always a straight course.
So I ‘keep the faith’, with each day that goes by;
Playing the game, over and over, and soar like a dove so high…
Getting closer and closer with each time;
Surviving moments that are tortuous, yet more sublime.
