Valentine Week: Love Lost

We don't always have a Valentine on Valentine's Day. Today's poem is geared toward those moments. It's also the only one of my poems I'm sharing this week.

First, let me explain: People tend to think all poetry is biographical. It is not. My love life didn't inspire this poem. My love of words did. I heard someone say, No love lost, and I thought, Well. That's not quite right

After signing the papers

I heard someone say
"No love
lost between them.

No love lost."

And passing by, you
then walked away.

You and I 
know love lost. 

Love lost.
