Fall Out Of Love


Can you make yourself love?
Can you make yourself be loved?
Can you waste away the sorrow
Before you're even all the way hurt
All the way damaged
Can you fall out of love

Can you make yourself mourn?
Can you make yourself be mourned?
Can your practice alone, in front of the mirror
What you're going to say to him
But keep silent, keep silent
Never brave enough
Can you fall out of love

Can you let him go?
Can you let him let you go?
While you hide and cry the day away
Without shedding a tear
Can you fall out of love

I thought I loved you
I thought we were
I thought we were
I thought I loved you…
before…

Can you make yourself love
Can you make yourself be loved
Can you make yourself mourn
Can you make yourself be mourned

Can you let him go
Can you let him go
Can you let him
Can you let him let you go…

Can you fall out of love

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
