If I Fall In Love Again

Stored for Another Day

by Jeb Bensing

IF I fall in love again,
Will it be better than,
The last one that ended in –
An ugly way?

Something that ripped my heart away.
Crippling me when she felt that it was the right thing to stray.
A place in perpetual hell,
Sadness and despair.
Not knowing when my days would improve,
Facing the pain instead of pushing it away.
Storing it all for another day.

If I fall in love again,
Will she love me better than her?
Tell me all is true.
Help me feel it through and through.
Be a faithful companion.
Never stray, Never betray,
Help me face my pain that has been tucked away.

Every morning my thoughts would attempt to conjure up hope,
Wanting my mind to unravel some great profundity.
Assuming that all this pain would eventually somehow fade.
Deep down the feeling of doubt would linger in my mind,
It was this huge weight of fear and pain.
The tell – tale heart knew how to strike that emotional chord.
I would quickly remind myself about all that pain,
It has always been stored for another day.


Never put limits on yourself. Always continue to dream, and hold on to hope. When love seems to fade, always remember that your soul continues to carry you through life. When you love yourself, life will never seem empty or cold. Love from others will always find you.

      Beautiful. Never give up hope for love. Often when you are not looking for love is when you find your soul mate. I did.
