For Love

Losing it all
Never knowing what they had
It wouldn’t be the first time
Something awful had been done
In the name of love
Finally we see what two people do
When trapped with no way out
A lifetime had gone by
Without really knowing
The stranger in the bed
Broken hearts, broken promises
Litter the floor like shards of glass
Causing pain to those who enter
Without grasping the circumstance

One thought on “For Love

  1. This poem has lots of strong descriptions of the darker side of love. I liked the way you talked about the aftermath of this love. It was an interesting read since I was expecting a much more joyous view.
