post romantic stress syndrome

I have motivations both lost and intense
and ponder whether to live a valid life
of faded lonely desire or wallow in a pretense
of desperate empty joy in her pallid strife?

    No! Stay true to yourself, always...gentle fury! Be free from that shackle of "pretense", always having to adjust and re-adjust..and for whom? Well, I'm sorry..forgive me for being so forward. Always, Annalise

    When we lose a love, we can either dwell in memories and loneliness or move on. You picked a great title to express these feelings of confusion, Stephen. Thought-provoking poem! Love, Carolyn
