About the Things We Can’t Save: Love

You will never find the right time–

the right time to profess your love, to your lover, and

That you would hold time ransom if the universe does not conspire in your favor,

That you would chose them over living

For what is the purpose of living if you can’t love the one you want to love?

That you would choose them over God.

For it is through God that you learned unconditional love

and that was the godly kind of love you wanted.

You will never find the right time.

The right time to choose yourself over the person you love.

You will always find excuses to give 

another shot at love, yet you cannot even forgive yourself.

You will convince yourself that is how love is supposed to be.

But what happens when things that are meant to be can no longer become?

What happens to the heart? How does it even begin to forgive again?

You will never find the right time, for the right person, and the right place.

It will always be about conditions and compromises and loveless love.

It will always be about distance and the inability to love beyond time zones

What happens then, to the heart?

What happens when distance and love can never be reconciled?

What happens to the things we wanted to have but could never get?

Isn’t love supposed to defeat all odds?

Isn’t love supposed to be godly?

Isn’t love supposed to be patient?

Isn’t love supposed to be about all the things we cannot save?

Isn’t this just us trying to find the right time?

You will never find the right time.

  1. There are so many things that I like about this post. I love the message, the repetition, and the statements followed by questions. The idea of timing in life has always been something I have been interested in and questioned. On the one hand in the grand scheme of things timing can seem trivial, while in the moment seeming utterly important. I feel that this post really embodies not only the curiosity involved with not only time but love and the timing of love. It does not pretend to hold all of the answers, but offers what it can. Beautifully presented!
