Of Love

You say you want to be with me
but in reality
your choices lead you everywhere
but here

You say you love
while feelings of
a different order fill your soul
to overflowing

like castles in the sand
the dreams we had
shatter as the waves wash o'er
the shores of our tomorrows

waves of sorrow, waves of guilt
We cannot have a life that's built
on wishes and on hope alone
for castles must be built of stone
to last

not sands that shift
and drift with every vagrant
wave of incongruity
if we would build a new reality
of love
