B: Around The End - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Let's pretend it's not
nearly all over,
love like we've loved before.
Love will not then
be all over.
Love will be
like love was before.

    Interesting write and carries a tinge of sadness and longing. The words are strong, for one who knows how it is to love and to see it slowly leave, and the pretense as I see it, is the option more acceptable than truth. Because truth hurts too much. (Report) Reply

    Why not? - life is 50% pretense anyway. I really like the philosophy of this poem. (Report) Reply

    Oh to wish for the impossible, but to know what is ideal and want it back. (Report) Reply
