This Feeling Keeps Me In Tears - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I trusted to know what love was when it came.
I thought I was prepared...
And aware of it!
I knew in my heart,
I would be able to define it.
Able I was to separate infatuation...
From an urge to please a passing temptation.

Until you left me with an addiction I miss.
A craving only you can satisfy.
I deny this as love,
Because this feeling keeps me in tears.
And I should be dancing!
Expressing nothing but joy.
I could...
If I held you again.
And that can not be love.

That can not be love.
That can not be love.

I refuse to accept it.
Not like that!
It can not be.
Not for me.
Not like that!
