THE JOY OF LOVING IS IN THE PAIN

in poetry •  2 years ago 

When they lodge a steel blade of words deep
into your heart and you feel invincible

When they feed you a mouthful of lies
and you feel your taste buds quake with delight

When they pour burning sulfur all over your mood
and you instantly feel cooler

When they make you obsess,
ponder the sound of your quaking heart

That is when you know that
The joy of loving is in the pain.
