How to Win at Love

June 15, 2015

Three ways
In love
That you’ll always lose

One : to another
Another being
A man
A thing
An obsession
A dream
A chance rashly seized

Two: to nothingness
To the empty space
Of a memory eternally lost

Like worlds aged and enduring
Swallowed entirely
In one go
By a single black hole

Three and most certainly
To death

Like all else that lives
So your love too must die
It’s the law of the universe
Nothing lasts
