they started things out
thinking they had it all under control
little did they know that
emotions change
into different shapes and forms

the control slipped through their fingers
disappeared just like that
all they were left with
 was a yearning
for more of something 
they couldn’t even define…

    Wilma, I started my last relationship this way, but emotions do change. Only true love is constant and I love the way you describe the "yearning for more of something the couldn't even define." Briliant! Hope your book is selling -- good idea to use it as your icon too. I'm collaborating with two other poets on a collection and a publisher has accepted it. We are going through the fine print of the contract now. Love, Carolyn
