love no more

I am confident in my ability to no longer
love.
After several beloved women, the emotion doesn’t
seem
to function anymore.

I’m hopeless, but thrilled:
the idea of no more pain
is invigorating.

then she enters the room;
a familiar face; gracefully
zigzagging through the crowd,
lips fuller and softer than a
sandbag trying to protect
the property from the oncoming
category 5 hurricane.

the intoxication of love
always seems to outweigh
the exhilaration of a pain-free life.
I guess it’s time for more heartbreak.
