    I want to know
    if falling in love
    always feels like an accident,
    something that happened
    without your noticing,
    like tripping in the dark
    and suddenly finding yourself
    on your knees
    with only the fall between
    unwatched for
    to mark the passage.
    I want to know
    if falling out of love
    always feels more like a crawl
    desperate and uncertain
    so drenched in backward glances
    that at times it feels
    like doing the moonwalk
    half-calloused
    on asphalt.
    I want to know
    if it is necessary
    or unavoidable
    to fall into hate
    just to rid yourself of love.
    If we have to drag ourselves
    over and over
    bare flesh against graveled pathways
    across the same losses and letdowns
    just to find a way
    to make ourselves believe enough
    that this thing
    which was once so good
    is no such thing at all.
    Must we fill
    every point at which we
    or other faltered
    with malicious intent?
    History re-written
    the apple polished poisoned to a shine
    and every edge
    ground to a fine point
    that we might cut ourselves against them
    paper-cut thin and paper cut pain
    until we find a way to white-out
    black-out, grey wash history
    or bleed to death
    rehashing the past
    trying to be reborn.

    Dearly Beloved;

    As always, a work of genius!:smile: I just wish the feelings of sorrow and frustration would leave you alone, or at least become more bearable and not so crushing...:sad:

    love,:hug:
