1. Love. Loss. Life.

 

”Tell me about love.”

I can define it,

I can recommend books,

I can list the symptoms and effects,

I can prattle off agape, philios, storge and eros.

I can recite a poem, or a sonnet by Shakespeare,

but 

can’t 

describe

it.

 

“Tell me about loss.”

I can see it,

I can observe it,

I can sympathize with it,

I can parrot motivational phrases,

I can list coping mechanisms and techniques,

but

can’t 

mean

it.

 

“Tell me about life.”

I live it,

I know of it,

I can speak of its origins,

I can tell stories of its endings,

I can watch it go by, try to find meaning in it,

but

can’t 

embrace

it.
