Love or Loss

life quote

Love or Loss

Is not love but loss that breaks a heart

the passing lives that leave their mark

the empty space in which we dwell

when castles built will break apart

and someone else will say farewell.


They leave behind from love a taste

when lives depart in such a haste

and keep us lost in empty rooms

we fill with ghosts later embraced

to walk alone among the tombs.


It’s what we lost that stains the soul

and does not fade when we get old

but sticks to skin so frail and scarred,

when love can make two parts a whole

 not love but loss will break a heart.
