POETRY1: “TO LOVE THE UNLOVED”

How do you love?
How do you love someone?
How do you love anyone possible?

What makes it enough?
How do you cope if it’s gone?
Why does love always have to cause so much trouble?

Why does it have to be so tough?
How to carry on?
How to pick up the pieces from the rubble?

How to be loved?
How to fix what’s (believed to have already been) broken?
How to reach out to an empty soul?

What if they believe they’re not repairable,
even when your door has always been open?
What if their existence threatens your composure to crumble?

Just do what you’re able to,
but not all should be left spoken
After that, just stay out of trouble

How do you love the impossible,
the one incapable of love,
and even laugh at the idea of being loved?
Good questions.
Even if you’ve given up,
remember that you’re only human.
