No Love Without Sacrifice

Posted: October 13, 2016 in Uncategorized

Alone with your unvarnished thoughts
unbidden and unexpected the truth comes at you
summons your strength even against your will.

Life has a way of engaging you entangling you knocking you off stride
no one here leaves unscathed no spectators in the game of life
everyone plays there are no cozy retreats no quiet places.

The house we built requires constant maintenance the warmth in winter is conditional
comfort is a luxury and a trap relax at your peril the doors open and close
no one stays for long.

Bad news is good news when it reminds you to feel the pain tells you you are alive
at least you see the truth with cool clarity and long for the heat of others
fear stifles hope confidence is shaken no love without sacrifice.
