~love's Shelf~

Don't come here expecting
love to always bloom,
Plant yourself in the moment
and love may flower soon.

Don't ever go searching
for a twinkle in the eye,
Love most often appears
when you don't even try.

Don't define what love is
for I already know,
Love is about leaving
and always letting go...

So heed these words I give you
passion comes at a price,
Love they say is freeing
yet it binds you rather nice.

Though you feel its heat now
love's frost will take a plunge,
Passion often burns deep
before its freeze takes lunge.

So bury deep inside you
anything you hold dear,
Love from just a distance
keeping not one soul too near.

And now don't you feel safe
so good all by yourself,
Living your life idle
while love's upon a shelf.
