Conditional Love

Shannon is a passionate individual whose feelings and thoughts tend spill onto the pages, often in the form of poetry and sometimes essays.


After a hard loss, I decided to contend

That even unconditional love must sometimes end

Now, however, I can see clearly

Through a lens no longer blurred by painful memories

That for it to end defies its very definition

Of having no conditions

For, you see, love is a strong force

And it can be given freely unless, of course

It’s conditioned upon

What’s good for the one whose love has stopped
