Where Does Love Go When It Dies?


Where does love go when it dies
or does it ever really?

Energy can never be destroyed,
and certainly love is energy,
for it moves mountains,
empowers miracles,
defeats hate.
Perhaps love simply changes form
when touched by the greedy fingers of death or
exhaled in breaths of betrayal.
Maybe it evaporates through our cells
and finds itself part of a cumulonimbus cloud
reincarnated as a rainstorm of emotion
accompanied by thunderous lightning
the next time your soul meets another’s.
Or could it become the detritus
upon which future loves are nourished,
enabling our hearts to be
mitachondrial powerhouses
amped and ready to risk again?

Where does love go when it dies
or does it ever really?
