Still,  I Love You

Still I Love You

Life and Love are funny things I realize, paradoxes and puzzles at times.

I reached out to comfort and be there for you, yet was met with stony silence,

And the door slammed in my face, not the first time,

Though I guess, chalk up to the situation and my perhaps I shouldn’t have stayed this long.

Still, I love you.

Life and Love are funny things I realize, paradoxes and puzzles at times.

I reached into my memory bag to find a plethora of beautiful and fond memories of us,

Of times spent together, photographs of things done together of smiles more than tears,

But there were very few to be found, the situation I suppose.

Despite all this and now your deafening silence, you life opaque and one big mystery to me,

Still, I love you.

As I read the blog which I re-posted, the letter to the ex-boyfriend it made me reflect on a particular connection in my life and from that reflection this poem sprang.
