Do not thank me for loving you

For you do not thank me

For breathing

Or my heart beating 

It’s only natural

Aging

Posted in Poetry, Random Thoughts with tags , , , , on August 20, 2015 by bigtuna185

Aging is a funny concept 

Because it’s not so much

The passing of time

As it is the growing awareness

Of things that have changed. 

August

I wish that you and I

Would remain as August lovers

For much like the summer

Cools and turns into 

A season of change

There is always an underlying heat

And the hope that it never ends.

Unconditional Surrender

If you define love in terms of
Winners and losers
Then you have already lost
For it is not a battle waged in violence,
And if it is,
May the aggressor be charged with war crimes.

It is to the advantage of the couple
To be diplomatic, a master negotiator
To not enter into accord
With reckless abandon and impatience

You may be tempted to
Redraw the boundaries
With no thought of consultation,
And do not think to appease
A stubborn dictator.
Such rulers are better off deposed

Love is compromise
A treaty of peace involving two parties
And while at times it may not make sense
To continue with the campaign
To forage onward into unknown territory
Embrace your pioneer spirit

Above all, know this:

Love is the obsessive endeavor
To entreat the other to selflessness
Through the very action itself
