That Very Word


Love.
That very word that haunts your heart
Squeezing every ounce of life from your body
Casting a shadow over your mind
Leaving nothing but hopelessness, fear, and regret.
Regret.
Regret for falling into it
Regret for believing in it
Regret for it being the last thing you think about before you sleep
Scorching your dreams life fire set to rain
Destroying your confidence like there's nothing left to gain
Crushing your spirit, leaving it down in the rut
Forcing you to want to give up, but somehow your conscience keeps making a fuss
Demanding you to remember and never surrender forgiveness
The feeling of faithfulness towering over the scene of betral
Love.
All that's left is love
That feeling of a flower blooming after ages of mud
That feeling of a cloud moving after blocking the sun
And most importantly that feeling that you give, next thing you know your falling into again
Love.
That very word love

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
