As Impossible As Directing the Sky

…can not be owned for it is the owner; love can not be possessed for it is the possessor; love can not be a slave for it is the master. To be in control of love is as impossible as directing the sky to do one’s will.

Contemporary romance author Rachael Wade
Love couldn’t be moved
by circumstance,
poor choices,
or even blatant lies;
skewed and damaged, yes,
but the heart can’t deny
what it wants most
once the desire is planted.
Whether in bliss or affliction,
love owns you all the same.
