Torture to Love Unloved - a Poem
Torture to love unloved,
To wander about the middling obscure
While feeding on mediocre memories.
Life is beyond the vaulted ceiling
Throughout the vaulted skies
Where stars aren’t merely make-believe
But really dimples of the moon.
Love cannot be planned
It can’t be predictable
It can’t be pretend
For days yet to dawn
That have no sunset
And smile for irrepressible joy.
