The Opposite of Love

The opposite of love is time

For time heals all

Except the scars of love

Love lost, love unsure, love unrequited

Only love can survive the weathering of time


One day later and I still feel love

One week later and I still feel love

One year later and I still feel love

One lifetime later, and I still feel love


They say that as time passes

The past becomes entrenched in darkness

In uncertainty

But the light of love

Glares through

Even if it only reminds us of pain

Of loss

Of sadness and grieving


A clock is dynamic

Moving until the end of time

Love is static

Anchoring down in the heart

Until finally the heart is ripped apart

By the knives of loss and love
