POEM: What If?

What if you were offered the chance to love something
more than yourself?

What if you could love something so much that it nearly killed you every time you were apart from this thing?

What if you were offered a chance to love something so intently,
so complete and so pure -
but only if you agreed that this thing could be taken away from you at any time, without a moment’s notice?

Capriciously. On a whim. Cruelly yanked away.

What if you were offered the chance at the most perfect love,
the most perfect way to love: to give it and receive it
but only on the condition that it just would not last.
It would not last at all.

Would you do it?
