Then and Now and Then (A poetic note & chain): IV of VI

Prev.: Then and Now and Then III

(The phases of life…)

The life phase of life. I would write a story. I would write for you: The Life Phase Of Life. But I could not find the words. I could not find the strength. I could not write with a breaking heart.

Life is pain. Life is a beauty. The countless phases of life show, they unfold. You will know when you see them. You will live them. I hate that you must do so, without me by you. I hate to only leave this in a note.

You will have relationships. And you will love a relationship. You will have work. You will know losses. You will know temptations. Some temptations will come in the form of feelings. Some temptations will come in the form of vile urges and imaginings. Other temptations will come in the form of people.

You will know happiness. And you will know death, as yet you live. You will thus know pain. You will suffer. And you will cry. You will laugh. And you will love life. It has innumerable sides, this life. You will know when you see them. You will live them.
