Lover or Loved?

Lover or Loved?

by Carolyn Glackin

If I am the lover

Who is the loved?

And likewise, if I am the loved

Who then, is the lover?

And what steps do I take

To safeguard and maintain

Either of those situations?

What comfort lies in expecting

Those roles never to expire?

None I say…

Only heartache and vexations

I am not a jailer

Thus, no one is beholden to me

Nor will I be kept beyond my time

So, I choose not the role of the loved

Nor that of the lover

For either might meet their end

Instead, I simply choose to BE love

I choose to step forth

As a vessel for its embodiment

And in that way,

I remain constant and eternal

For love asks naught of itself

Nor does it place requirements

Or expectations on anyone

All are invited to be free

And I, too, am free

Neither loved, nor lover, but love

Which embraces all, and has no end.

Blessings,

Carolyn Glackin
