Believe in love.
Believe so ardently that your heart
burns from the pain of longing, loss
and subtle expectation,
a flame that reduces you
to dying embers
at the thought of that special other.
This aching lamentation
is for the cold shouldered,
the one who got away,
the one who stole your anxious soul.
Explore your separate paths,
you forlorn and weary travellers
and perhaps you will find each other,
somewhere on the periphery
of a merged existence.
