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.

H.O
