This Isn’t Automatic

this isn’t automatic
there won’t be a notification
upload to the cloud
an app update downloaded
with no effort save the
initial command

love is a grind
available but an intentional
choice to activate
it doesn’t just operate
in the background

it needs flesh to be seen
bone to build
sinews to stretch out
and touch through
cold stone

hurting hearts
bruised and broken dreams
those on autopilot
lost to the past

no this isn’t automatic
love is a verb
in the sentence of you and i
first loved to continue
the embracing circle

until the story slowly begins to shift and without really knowing how or why
we turn the page
and with wonder
enter into
an unexpected
