Poem: To have loved

They say it’s better

to love and lose

your head

your mind

your heart

your body

Drunk on love

but for now

my soul disagrees.

Too many endings

in just this one lifetime

makes my spirit weary

Sick of hope.

  1. Hi Judy. Here’s a quote you might like (or hate since it plays the opposite side of your theme) by Mary Wollstonecraft: “It is better to be often deceived than never to trust” (1792). Wollstonecraft, among other things, was the greatest feminist ever to write in English, as the ideas from her 1792 “Vindication” are more persuasive and resonant than any subsequent feminists past or present. Gary, aka Daedalus Lex
