Emotional Alchemy

Pictures show me how I felt,
Which thing your presence can't do.
Long ago you were electric,
But I wonder now, \u201cWho are you?"\u201d

5

What did you do with my dear?
Or am I the one who morphed1?
Is the tenderness I knew now gone,
Or has it somehow been dwarfed?

We had love once upon a time;
10

I never wanted to let it go.
Was it my neglect or your hormones?
Questions won't bring back lost love, though.

But tell me, can we spare more pain
And rejuvenate what we have left?
15
Can we practice emotional alchemy2,
Or must we be hithermore bereft3?

Nature needs fire to burn away
The excess that strangles new growth.
Will you help me do a prescribed burn4,

20
Or was our pledged love a wasted oath?

I hardly recognize you now,
And you might say the same of me.
You may blame it on the vines of time,

1 Morphed: changed
2 A l c h e m y: turning something inferior into gold, which is possible only for con\u00adpersons
3 Bereft: grievously lacking
4 Prescribed burn: controlled burn used to prevent the massive destruction of forest
