The Loving

We were so good together, you and I.
The loving was so real.
It filled my world with happiness.
Each touch became a thrill.

Now emptiness has gathered
round my heart and soul again.
Since you said that all the loving
had to end.

Awakened by a dream, I felt you near.
Loving came, and everything was clear.
The outer world is hard and cruel.
You made me feel like such a fool.

I'll never understand the rage
that made you want to change.
A manly thing, of duty bringing
battle to the fore.

You used to think our loving
meant much more. ..
