Love’s like that sometimes

when you are in conversation with the angel
and you’re falling to a conclusion,
the solution you were seeking seems so clear.

But it’s always the terminal velocity
that strikes fear into the heart of men,

Live and learn,
not always true
some never do
some never will
or learn,

he turns the pages quickly
before the truth hits home,
that he’s falling to obscurity
and he’s doing it alone.
