Love in Black & White

The boat of a future horizon
sails away
The chance to board now past tense
Dusk and dawn become one

There is a yearning that follows
questions are being asked
so very quietly
in the tidal undercurrent
of
the why and the why not

The balance of love
should never be a burden in your sails
And
Not draw quarrelsome lips
but some dive too soon or too deep

Truth is my friend
Love lost or not found in time
recedes away the armor of us
The fiber in who we are will speak
when we least want to be seen
Unlucky and lucky a toss of a coin

We cannot understand the enigma of love
to try to capture it
is flying without wings
Accepting we leave a loveprint
A pawprint of our anima or animus
To understand a lifetime may not complete

To be done with love for all time
This resolve we have heard
We know it is the heart that aches
with the bruise of love unadorned
The black and white of uneaten fruit

The boat becomes a spec
a sty in the mind’s eye
swelling at the thought of a lost soulmate
And we want more
Of what we cannot have
Of what we feel was unjust

Wear a heartjacket to foolproof
from loving too much or too little
And
you may still sink or drown
You may choose to slip far away
Or wear the yoke of a dreaming fool
Love does not play by our rules

*Love is not fair
Or
unfair
Love is not for the lucky
Or
unlucky
Love can make us happy
