Inevitable Unions

Post  WhitneyClark on Fri Jul 13, 2012 12:01 pm

The union of love and loss are like stars in the sky
forever bound to one another without any choice in the matter
hopelessly permanent.

a terrible mystery
keeping us asking,
why this tragedy?

love, something timelessly valued
once seared by loss
becomes a tragedy quickly sought to be forgotten

loss, something so ordinary it's come to be expected
once pushed into the realm of love
becomes a nightmare quickly sought to be forgotten

Except you can't wake up
love and loss are your new reality
they make their new home in your heart

The pain of their union rests on the brink of unbearable for the human mind
threatening simple sanity
simple abilities once performed with ease

Their very union is a mystery,
dumfounding men and women for centuries

Hating seeing them together,
yet being unable to pull them apart

like two halves of a circle,
they are bound to meet eventually

together they create an endless sea of souls:

wishing
remembering
longing

for what should have been,
but can never be.

Welcome Whitney!

Hey Whitney...welcome to the group. I look forward to the feedback on your poem.

I might render off a bit of redundancy, for example:

The union of love and loss are forever bound
without any choice
hopelessly permanent.

(I cut the stars...though I like the sound...since stars aren't actually joined)
