I’ve been thinking a bit about the nature of love, so I wrote a new poem for you. It’s entitled “Love Musings”. Hope you enjoy it.
“It’s your God-forsaken right to be loved”
Is love a right,
One to which we are all entitled?
Does loneliness equal
Cruel and unusual punishment
For which we should be compensated?
Is God shunning me
Because I am alone?
Or, is being loved a privilege,
A special gift, a glorious gem
That is given, and earned?
Am I simply unfortunate
Or perhaps unworthy
When I stand by myself?
I want to believe the former
Hope that I am due for love
That I need nothing more than patience
To bask again in love’s glow
And have God bless me again
But I’m more of the mind
That love must be earned
With hard work and persistence,
Not to mention fortunate logistics
I see much pain and effort in my future
Before love will grow again,
If indeed it does
Don’t get me wrong, though
I’m still open to the God thing
