Not-Quite-Love - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

His greatest fear
was what we all fear:
that love has passed him by,
or that what he thought was love,
was something else,
something inferior.

The interior of his heart
was cluttered with these thoughts,
and he began to love his fear
and to fear his love.

How ephemeral is this emotion,
this state of being
so immortalized in poetry and song.

He was destined to fall in love many times
in his lifetime, but never feel its joy,
because he always feared it was something
not-quite-love that he felt,
something less than perfect.
