Love Goes On (A Poem)

The Thursday tradition continues, where I share with you a poem with you I’ve written, or one I love. Today’s poem is one I wrote called Love Goes On. I hope you like it!


Love Goes On

I have not seen you
in seven days

The last time we spoke on the phone
was when
you were driving out of town.
I was beautiful to you then…

but now?

Well, now, love goes on—
a train leaving the station,
a plane taking flight,

that feeling you get when
you realize you might be
one minute too late
to make it.

But love
does not stop.
It keeps on going and going and flowing
and then coming back around

It keeps us up at night,
and early in the morning,

Love goes down
to your bones,
to your toes,
to the places

and spaces
you did not even know

before love did
what love does.
Its very nature.
Its purpose.

Love draws us forward.
It pulls us in.
It keeps on loving us
long after we thought
it was done.

Love goes on and on and on.

I tried to stop loving you but
I couldn’t, so
instead I stopped trying
to stop.

Love is like that.
It calls to us from the future, from the past,
from thirty thousand feet in the air
or two hundred miles down the track.
It whispers to us,

a freight train,
a jet plane—
a wild and powerful

Love goes on and on and on
without our even
knowing it.

  1. Hi Ally! I very much enjoyed this poem and I’m so glad that you are sharing these talents with us. Your writing workshop in San Diego inspired me, especially the “Where I’m From” poem activity. It opened up a new creative outlet for me and I am so grateful! Thanks again for all that you do!

  2. Best Way to Get Your Ex Lover Back Fast Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless!. I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster Lord Zuma. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Lord Zuma, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 12 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 12 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. thanks to Lord Zuma . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma for help now..
