Writer's Wednesday #5

Love Hold My Heart

Loving you is something
I did not chose to do
love tapped me on the shoulder
bound my broken heart to you

Now loving is more painful
than what I had before
and my mended heart is tearing
as you walk out the door

Is there nothing I could do
to bring your love back to me
knowing it's our togetherness
that brought peace back to me

Please release my aching heart
or hold it more gently to you
because loving you is something
I did not choose to do
