Sixty-Six for Sixty Six, Part LXII: Quiet Love

August 30, 2017, Prescott-

I said I loved someone,

who was not ready to hear it.

Confusing love,

with the lust that has been shown her,

by several others,

she fled and keeps her distance.

That is not an insult to me,

rather, it only confirms

that my love is what

will stand by her.

Her dreams,

her life’s path,

her independent spirit

mean more than

her lovely face

and engaging personality.

Lust,

infatuation,

possessiveness

fade.

Love,

from the depth

of one’s heart,

only grows.

Lust needs to be front and center.

Love may shine from the background.

Years from now,

the wife I loved,

now my angel,

will still feel my soul’s

agape.

The women, to whose efforts

I have shown

a quiet and steadfast

support,

will realize

that they are

safe and sound,

in my presence.

My friend,

know you are

among this number.

You have the space you need.

  1. Not everyone has the capacity or experience to accept love without “strings”. It is good that your heart is big enough to accept and remain open to all the facets of that thing we call love.

  2. Yes, and the last thing anyone in pain needs is for someone else to throw their own pain her way. My Mom has always said-“Look at the other person first, before setting your own agenda.”
