Falling in love was so easy.
Simply opened my heart to you.
Stepped out on faith of feeling
and allowed emotions to guide me.
If allowed, it would’ve lasted forever
running on passion and primal connection.
But something happened, an intervention began.
Sneaking into my mind, slowly interrupting;
beginning like a tiny shoe pebble.
Walked upon, at first, hardly noticed,
but rubbing into sole – my soul –
and causing discontent. The mind wonders.
It’s been too long lingering here
I long for something more concrete.
It’s not enough to say it —
sweet sentiments to honey a moment.
Walk forward into our eternal knot
or untie this string hold now.
Endings never seem an easy start
even when it begins a new.
Can I fall up? Clinging to truth.
There’s no ring to encircle us.
No declaration before powers invested in.
I did. I don’t. I do.
