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?
