Poem – “Hurts to Love, Hurts to Lose” – Romance – 10/20/2020

Pull myself together
Under your breathing form,
In the circus of your entwining arms,
Lurking in your shadow
Where I can melt my smile
Into your veins.

Like idle crosses
Where no savior resides,
I can die, over again,
For the faces that never wither,
Bleeding and puling
In the arms of their captured beloved.
Pulling myself
Down, under your form,
Not leaving.

Hurts to love, hurts to lose,
From above, down to fuse
With the trail that never goes unmarked
By unwept tears,
Smearing our names, together,
Within sinking ships.
