It Feels Like Love - Poem by Daniel Erdner

Loss of an ideal, loss of what could have been
Loss of something real, loss of a lover and a best friend
When you only see the reasons why it won't work out that is what you get
Never finding perfect love, living in regret
Do you really think we could have been together under different circumstances
Or was it all a flash of fancied emotional inebriation
Someone makes you feel happy, special, good about yourself
That someone wants to keep on doing so but you put your feelings on the shelf
Love is fed by the feelings of the other
When love is dead it's the feelings that you smother
But I'd like to think that if it's real it maybe doesn't die
If love is real then the feelings heal and you don't have to look for how and why
It's in our hearts hidden from the pain
of over-analyzing loss and gain
Love isn't alive on a ledger sheet
Love is feeling, love is heat
When love lives mostly inside the head
The theory of the grand idea is dead
When love is felt inside the heart
It survives the time and miles apart
Love isn't convenient or always kind
I guess it's true that love is blind
We're just humans being
Feeling with the heart but guided by the mind.
The mind doesn't know what the heart can do
So just make the most of what you've got
With mind so cold and feelings hot
Find your balance so you can live
But don't let the pain of what could be
Take away your joy before you see.
