mortal love

mortality does
not ask for love eternal

mortal love
cannot outlive eternity’s edge
to an infinite span

mortal love
does not ask forever

mortal love
makes lies, makes changes,
twists and turns

mortal love is simple
like a dimple

one tongue
to one earthly word

may do
may say something else

It is only asking
That you love
One day at a time

With all allowance for change
For a wider space

Mortal love is free

this love of mine

Today is just enough
And so rightly deserved

A mortal like me
Also bleeds
Weeds filled

No promises, just a hug, an embrace

A kiss, then could be, goodbye.

Because mortal love
Dies, like a wind passing by
