A Wasted Love?
Can love be wasted,
Erode with neglect?
Could it diminish
With too much lonely
Become almost inept?
Love lives forever.
Could that be only
If consistently nourished,
What can we think, if,
Crumbling, love's debris
Crashes through hopes,
The start of a cold
Relaxes love's bonds,
So un-yoking begins.
Duty then treads on the
Heels of what once was
Devotion, and hurt hides
Behind blind fronts.
But love, never wasted,
Can over-ride lapses,
And, if rising above
Dour clouds, can survive.
Climbing to higher skies
It can revive itself.
Given a chance, true
Love and reason advance.
