A Defeated Love

by Nailah Abdus-Salaam

You can never love anyone 
With a heart that holds,
Anger,  and bitterness, 
Towards any soul.
They will remain in your heart, 
As long as these feelings you hold.
These emotions will keep you attached,
And leave you cynical and cold.
Feelings don't die easily,
If you keep feeding them memories.
The mind repeats,
What the heart can't delete.
A love succumbed to defeat,
Is too heavy a load,
And hindrs new blessings,
Waiting to unfold.
Honor the space in between,
The no longer and the not yet seen.
