In practice

A confession:

If only i could get love right.

In theory i have it:
Practice of grace
undeserved kindness

unreciprocated gift

Wanting the best for another

(Knowing i won’t always be it).

In theory,
I place my faith in the impossible every day.

In practice,
When i come face to face with the impossible person,
I have no faith in them at all.

Forgive me for every time
My love comes up short.

I’m trying to get it right.
