Shall I Ask For Nothing

Does love change over time
Or does it not have longevity?
Is the heart squashed into a triangle
Or does it slowly fade into the aging page?
Yellowed by the years no longer pristine
Is growth always going to be apart?
Can different still be done together?
As the planet turns and the sun burns
Does passion turn to some kind of affection?
Is there mere tolerance behind the tears?
Easier that which you know to simply endure
And live just in numb existence
With plates too full for consideration
And survival on both sides of the card
What the days of life have become of
