Love Without Hope


August 19, 2014

Take, O take those lips away,
That so sweetly were forsworn,
And those eyes: the break of day
Light that do mislead the morn;
But my kisses bring again, bring again,
Seals of love, but seal’d in vain, seal’d in vain.

William Shakespeare

I won’t walk across him anymore
I guess I know how that is….
like people you love
when they walk across your heart
back and forth
every day
every night
and think you have no feelings
just because you lie there so still.

Linda Goodman
