The Very Heart Of Living

I’m sitting here
Trying very hard
To write about love.
Love is easy;
It just happens.
You don’t even notice
Until it’s too late –
You’ve fallen.
It’s also very difficult.
It can make
Your whole body hurt.
It can reveal
Dark spaces inside you
That you didn’t know existed,
And didn’t want
To know about.
But it’s life –
The very heart of living.
You learn about yourself
As a person in this world.
“The only education worth having.”
It’s raw, and beautiful,
And it’s worth the wait.
