Before The Absence Of It Is Recognized

Something had to have been there,
Before the absence of it is recognized.

There are those who wish for love.
But identifying it,
They can not admit that feeling...
Has ever existed for them.
Especially those with preferences.

Something had to have been there,
Before the absence of it is recognized.

Those embittered and express it,
Know what love is and this makes them sick.
Every time they think of something they did foolish.
Like admitting to submitting.
And wanting now to leave those feelings abandoned.
But can't.
And this is made no secret!

Something had to have been there,
Before the absence of it is recognized.

There are those who wish for love.
But identifying it,
They can not admit that feeling...
Has ever existed for them.
Especially those with preferences.

Those who know true love,
Aren't afraid of being crushed.
But may be overly cautious,
Suspicious and distrusting.
Hoping one raised eyebrow,
Doesn't give them or their experiences away.

'So...
How long did it take you to despise and hate,
Your previous mate? '
