Love’s non sequitur

Love’s non sequitur

Love you one time
love you two times

I understand
but what does

“love you always”
mean on the lips

of a lover who
excludes you

from her life
who says and does

nothing to affirm
that love but allows 

those very sentiments 
to settle as silent sediment

in a soon to be
forgotten past

John Lyons
