Love Realized

30.3 _ choose love? [EXPLORED]

(Photo credit: Matthias Rhomberg)








I have walked the long and winding road,
destination an afterthought,
led others, followed a few,
not aware of yearning
or the life not lived,
until I learned —
all for naught

    So sweet. Love the visual poetry in that the line lengths are whittled down to the “you,” which ended up being all that mattered.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
