Have We? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“You are at once both the quiet and the confusion of my heart.” Franz Kafka

Have We?

Some things come to me at odd moments,
tying a shoelace or washing a cup or, in
the moment of the perhaps, waiting for
something, anything, in the length of a
soft, slow day, that might offer meaning,
depending on the question of course,
like love, for example, that we don't really 
know what it is even when we have supped 
from its chalice, have we consumed love
or, has love consumed us?

  7. Love has consumed myself and was blinded by love but now I only see the love for God and then see love for other’s. That’s the only way for me to love other’s๐Ÿ’๐ŸฝI know that’s confusing but you get what I’m saying…if I don’t love God unconditionally then I can’t love anyone else๐Ÿ˜ž
