Ask for Love

I ask for love

torrential and unwaivering love

of full hearts and blind eyes

of loyalty that stories are written about

I want to feel the depths of emotion

to grow and evolve with another person…

I ask for all of this –

and I will get it.

I get what I ask for

it doesn’t always feel warm and fuzzy

mostly it doesn’t these days

with a deep thick pain in my chest

enveloping and encompassing my heart space



with a pinch in my throat and with tears just about to fall…

Is this the love I ask for?
