Sage's Promise... Two-for-two Tues.

Every year PAD'S two-for-two Tues. includes this prompt: 
write a love poem. write an anti-love poem

Maybe in time her heart will not lurch
At the mention of you
Where the color blue
And thought of you merge

Maybe, in time she will find
Who she was before your ‘love’
Fell, lifeless as the glove
A straggler left behind

Maybe in time, Time's ripple effect
Will ripple beyond her reach
...the waves that wash across the beach
Not charged with echoes they resurrect

And, maybe, maybe after a while
And then maybe she will feel
The laughter that wears her smile
