Love’s Aftershock

Love has thrown me
into an ocean, where I cannot
touch its depth nor rest my head
on its chest. Not until I am able
to hold its waves with my bare hands.
And that’s impossible.
Love play games like that.

I have only one wish,
to rest my head
and stay that way.
Unmoved by the aftershock
of love- of being so intensely
and wholly in love, yet losing it
all when it is over.

Thrown down again,
knowing nothing.
