Not Bemused About Love

I am putting paid to my past

I do not want to feel the pain

Nor do I want to hear lies

From others or myself

For it seems like

The first casualty in love

Is truth itself

And in a manner of speaking

I am no longer sure

What love is

Or who I love

And who loves me

Maybe love is not that big a deal

If I have lived without it

And made it good thus far

What’s another decade or two

To take in my stride

Although I remember realizing once

That you do not ask for love

From others

Because you ask for something

That you do not already have

And, if love not be in my heart

Maybe I am that kind of guy

Who can get by without love

For God must have had

A damn good reason

For sending me into this world

With a heart without love.
