Where Did I Go?

Where did I go…what in the world did I do…how did I lose me and all that I am…by simply loving you?
Where in this story of love, does one get lost from themselves…how can love place one on this lonely little shelf?
Dusty little shelf…for collected pieces of taste and affection…an artifact of only a visual satisfaction…
Set off to the side…the idea and joy of sharing, absurd…only needed at one’s request…to be seen and not heard…
Love is not this charade…to be called upon in greed…love should be shared by two lovers needs…
But what does my own ears hear…I want you and now I don’t…it’s as if this profession of love is none but a taunt…
Surely somehow, distorted this love has become…this must be one’s cruel idea of what they think is true love…
I lost me somewhere in my need to be loved… but in the desire to give all that I am…I forgot who I was…
In my days I saw love and I know it was real…two in the giving and sharing…nothing that one had to steal…
I find myself in despair…I know this shelf is not for me…I may be left completely alone…but farce is all I see…
Love is more than one person, taking selfishly what they want…love is in the sharing of not one, but two people’s hearts…
