Retaliation

 

Love always pays,
and losses will increase it only,
always doubling, never losing,
being the most elementary characteristic
nucleus and fundamental core of life,
and actually the only matter
that can never be defeated,
lost, bereft or turned to nothing,
since the more you give of it,
the more it always will come back
in one form or another.
Even if they die,
it is impossible for lovers to be losers,
since the more they lose,
by wasting or by losses brought by destiny,
the more immortal and continuous
love simply will turn out to be,
phenomenally overcoming any death
since it is life itself
that simply can’t exist without expanding.

It would seem to be so, though at times hard to believe. Excellent poem.
