Truth nor Deluded Hopes can Disqualify Love

Truth nor Deluded Hope can Disqualify Love

Truth rises in open hearts,
and delusions quench the thirst,
but in their inevitable gloaming
lose their light in time’s distant horizon,
as attest we may the emotions evoked,
as real as flesh and minds sweet hold,
when truth settles on a questioning mind,
the reality cannot disprove
when love finds purchase, a place to nurture,
it is real in loves eyes,
and that is all that matters.

Love like so much in life
is not dependent upon return,
its flow is within us, and the glow,
even unrequited, shows just what a soul is,
and no-one can judge such giving, for its own sake
a living in the light of truth;
sorrow for a would-be loss is wasted,
for love’s giving is all the measure required,
to love, to desire,
our ability in love’s shadow,
is a soul’s gratitude.

The space that hope and reality share
can be confusing, for we believe,
we perceive our dreams there, in arms reach,
however we may breach truth,
assume the truth in our favor
because we want it so much,
and in love, our greatest dream fulfilled,
we invest wholeheartedly,
without doubt and often care,
as we weave our path to our own despair,
truth a shock, after all we dared feel.

Love, so much deeper than wants,
desires and circumstance,
is within the capabilities of a soul,
a spiritual thread of ascension,
a selfless giving without intention,
experience for it own sake,
the essence of ourselves revealed
in vulnerable state,
just to be within love’s grace,
and in that a life missing nothing,
a soul expressing all it is.
