It appears that love is not as statuesque

as you may imagine

as tall as a supermodel

as buff as a bearded hipster

everything you think you love hard

can break

like ice on a pond.

Careful where you walk

at what temperature

and never leave

the love of your life


or they may fall through

the cracks

hidden to the eye.

Love lost

hidden to the mind

from the sight of your heart

left behind.

Blinded by careless acts



words too frail to speak

your heart too weak.

A careless contribution

cuts to black

so watch your back baby

for you rarely cared for mine

and all we had

never truly felt

like the love

I deserved.
