Love Dies

love dies
no matter your belief
no phantoms left

those who pretend
that shadow semblances remain
captured in mental imagery

are living a dream
with a make-believe
'ghost in the machine'
their only
imaginary real friend

seek professional help

discuss with your therapist
how the third man
metaphor of Platonic idealism
became the butt
of an Aristotelian joke
much later a book by Graham Greene
& a 1949 British Noir movie
starring Orson Welles

hanging on to shades
of passion past
make-believing there is
passion present
clinging to a vision
of passion future

why so desperate ?
