Not a long time ago
our love was in the clouds
I love you, but I’m not in love with you.
I want your friendship minus your desire.
I would not lead you falsely or betray you.
I feel the tenderness, but not the fire.
I have no reason for my lack of yearning,
No explanation for what I don’t feel,
No other love to whom I might be turning,
No anguish to suggest this isn’t real.
Seven years! Is that the famous itch
Each marriage tells a story all its own.
Very few can hitch without a hitch.
Enduring love, however, needs a home.
Nor can a couple couple long without
Yearning for some token of the heart.
Ecstasy is not what love’s about.
A passion is made permanent by art.
Rejoice, then, in what heart and mind decree!
Seven is good luck – so may it be!
I have no reasons for my lack of yearning
No explanation for what I don’t feel
So I must say what you don’t want to hear,
But it’s a truth that both of us must bear:
I love you, but not
As I did before.
