Love is Not Enough

typical tuscan landscape

 
 
sometimes
 
love isn’t enough
 
sometimes
 
love doesn’t heal all wounds
 
or rebuild all bridges
 
or conquer
 
anything at all
 
 
sometimes we can’t cross the ocean between two souls
 
love won’t fix your resistance to having children
 
your desire to not be married
 
love can’t thrive if you are travelling the world
 
and they don’t understand your thirst
 
love won’t close the gap
 
between your desire for sunny beaches
 
and his for snowy mountains
 
 
sometimes love isn’t enough
 
to heal the pain
 
of the night you stopped choosing her
 
for a few moments
 
hours
 
 
love showed up the moment you saw him
 
i pick this one
 
your heart whispered
 
yes but now your gut is screaming
 
be free
 
be with you
 
love isn’t enough
 
you are
 
for you love them
 
but you must love you, too
 
 
love won’t erase
 
your stubborn ingrained beliefs
 
love won’t heal you
 
from the pain of your childhood
 
that’s your lifelong job
 
heal yourself
 
first
 
 
love won’t keep you safe
 
from settling
 
into a life you don’t want
 
love won’t silence
 
your gut screaming
 
no
 
no
 
no
 
this isn’t it
 
 
love isn’t enough
 
to survive off
 
you need your emotional needs met
 
like you need air to breathe
 
water to drink
 
the ocean to exist
 
 
love won’t hide you
 
from being hurt
 
by the one who said i do
 
 
love won’t protect you
 
from your body knocking you down
 
because you weren’t paying attention
 
to the sirens of pain
 
 
love will not do any of this
 
because love from another
 
is not enough
 
to sustain you
 
your breathing heart
 
 
this
 
is the paradox
 
of human existence
 
for love is life force
 
yet this kind of love
 
can only come
 
from within your own
 
bones
 
your own
 
viens
 
this love
 
lives in the space between
 
the layers of your skin
 
where your heart
 
meets your head
 
somewhere between
 
the poems that are the lines
 
of your body
 
this love
 
this
 
is enough.
