I Loved Him for a Moment


I loved him for a moment until the common senses arrived.

walk behind me he said, you will be safe there.

why are you walking behind him they asked

because he asked me to, to be safe

you are a fool, he wants to control you, not  protect you

I know, said I with a foolish smile

How can you think you love him

he is not appropriate for you

He will hurt you

But it was only for a moment

How can he hurt me

He is far away and he has no will to hurt me.

He will hurt your heart

your dignity

He will ask much and give little

yet I do not step away from heart-break.  IF  my heart is broken

it means I have felt love, the most beautiful pain of all

Renounce a love that might have been fearless

is to be a coward, afraid to love

Who are you

Have you never been struck by unsuspected love

Even for a moment?

Be fearless and grab for heartbreaking love

It’s the only way a heart can be broken yet heal to love again.
