When I Love You

When I love, I love you. It’s as simple as that.
Why do you think it hurt so bad to see you leave?
My love is a castle of steel whose walls deflect
catapulted stones of hate as though they were pebbles.
I love like the universe; it never goes away,
always existing and unremovable.
The love I have absorbs pain and turns it into tears,
and wanders confused until the blindness is lifted.
You don’t love me, empty, you leave me be,
my love dissipates and disappears upon the sea.
