It's not enough

Isn't love supposed to be enough
to get through any situation?
To conquer distance?
Physically, emotionally.
To fix the ones you care about?
Isn't love supposed to be the cure for everything?
Did I not love hard enough?
Did I not do something right?
Did I fail you somehow?
I love you with every fiber of myself
but it couldn't fix what life threw at us.
You're gone
it wasn't enough
it couldn't fix what was broken
I believed
I thought
I trusted
that love could overcome it all
and it failed me
"Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails."
-But it did.

Was I foolish to believe?
To think that it could ever be enough
to keep us together?
That it was strong enough to overcome all odds
I still love you
I know that you love me.
But it's not enough...

Penny, Penny, Penny… Damn Girl… I can relate with this a little too much. This was a very beautiful heartfelt piece and it pains me to know that you’ve experienced pain such as this. I love you baby girl and if you need me, you know I’m here for you.

as i've learned in the past, love can be strong, but if you don't have the other tangibles, it never fits into our equations. nice piece
