No on and off switch to love?
No. But you can kill the power. You can pull the plug and render it gone.
All it takes is one lie too many, one misrepresentation on top of another,
And poof, it disappears. No toggle can restore it.
It is as though a gamma ray burst destroyed it, as if an electromagnetic pulse
Coursed through the veins of the heart and murdered it.
No capacity left.
Salt in the four corners of my heart, over the threshold, sage in the air,
Knots in the love towel, over the bridge, into the water, going down, down
Forever in the dark water, never to come up again
Impotent for eternity, that is how I see you.
