helpless in the face of love November 17, 2016

When I was told, in no uncertain terms,

to never have contact with you again,

my mouth remained shut, but my heart

It cried

It moaned

It yearned

But I was helpless in the face of love.

Jealousy sings at higher octave and louder

and I could call it all a misconception

Just friends

No affair

Nothing tawdry

But I was helpless in the face of love.

There was no mercy, no quarter for hiding

and whimpering over the loss is useless.

Friends leave

Conversations forgotten

Promises unkempt

And I was helpless in the face of love.

Understanding days, months, years separate

more than miles and squealing airplane tires

Closed book

Lost chapter

Moving away

But I was hopeless in the face of love.

I would get used to the silence and loss

we all do after something or someone dies

Its mourning

Its grieving

Its memories

But I was hopeless in the face of love.

It comes down to choice and direction

and I have had to make mine, no closure,

But I am hopeless in the face of love.
