Ifs, Buts, & What-ifs

they could be dancing
that exquisite dance of passion and love
their sky could be blue and pink and beautiful
and they could find home in each other

but they are cowards, their skies grey
and love is only for the brave
so they will walk side by side, each alone
while their souls ache because they know…

they know what could be.

    It is for the very brave and for the fighters in the field of emotions !
    Tough Love – its tough ! And I am not a fighter.. never have been.It’s sad at times.

      Thank you so much for the appreciation–of my writing and my name.
      You’re right: To love is to be brave. But there are many among us who aren’t. (Some days I’m one of them too.)
