Love

So many are talking about love
So many speak of relationships
Seems there is a need to be close
It also seems intimacy is difficult

Listening, I hear tales of the nature of Men
As a man, this listener is offended
Could a human be so very inhumane?
Is there no empathy in the world?

The heart remembers grief
Loss by choice, loss by nature
The eyes see mourning in others
The heart hears the fear of new pain

How can one love and not see the soul behind the eyes?
How can one value only a single moment?
Is not love a prayer for forever?
Is not love taking pride in the joys of life?

Can a man be offended by mankind?
Seeing love cast away for attraction
This heart prays for forever
Seeing joy and feeling safe
