I Have Failed in Love

I have failed in love.

I have been the rain pouring,

on a sunny day.

I have failed at writing haikus, senryus, and sonnets.

I have fallen on my face a thousand times before sunrise,

knocked out my teeth, broke my nose, and blackened my eyes.

I can no longer see. I am blind,

and have only myself to blame.

I have learned nothing and continue to fail in love.

And yet I still try.

I still find a way to love,

this dying flower.
