Love

I forget how it goes,
The dreamy stages
of wakefulness
The blissful pain
of tears
The wet disguises
Shared in amorous moments.

I forget the brilliance
of stars, sea, skies
I forget that once known story
Read by tender hands at bedtime.
Can hardly remember
the dancing shadows
on moonlit nights
The pounding of
New thoughts.

I forget how it goes
The most common word
On everyone's lips.
I forget its sound.
It's left me far behind.
I look ahead
To see it evading me
In every corner.

But I look behind
And I vaguely catch
In the drifting breeze
The silent smell
Of what it means.

...A beautiful depiction of pain.

Love evades at every corner?...Open ur arms and feel the breeze. Love will embrace u and like a child it will be in ur arms.
