Fleeting Love (a poem)

Source

It must have been

an intensity undefined

without the stay

of love and fairy tales

filled with faithful honor and boundless passion.


Perhaps it was but

a passing fancy

masked distraction to amuse.


Conditions and circumstances

lost so near

forever shift my heart's design,

bring every kiss and warm embrace

closer to the last.


Try as I might

such love slips by.


Emotion fails

within my heart

to capture a moment

just gone passed

undone by time.

Sometimes love doesn't last but that doesn't mean it was a negative experience. Thanks for the votes up. You are appreciated.

Everything that happens to us, positive or negative, helps us to grow, learn and hopefully become stronger.

You said alot with your few words, great writing!

I think I told you I have you on my prayer list. I pray for you every single morning.

God bless, Sparklea :)
