There Is No Forcing Oneself On The Other

love is a democracy
it does not force itself upon other people's hearts

when it is welcomed
it enters the door and expects to be cared for

when it is time to leave
love knows how to make that graceful exit

it goes out the door of mutuality
leaves the room
leaves nothing

it closes the door slowly
there is no banging of anything

the words are kind
when it says goodbye.
