Should the broken heart persist
in it's courageous pursuit
Of love when the pain insists
That the broken heart remain mute?

Will my heart become dissolute?

Should the flame of love abate
More each time we love in vain,
Should we then our hearts berate
For causing us such awful pain?

Will I ever know love again?

I always ask myself this
When I chance to love anew,
Before I choose to resist
I first ask, What would the dead do?

Should my heart die, or live anew?

If the dead could rise again
Perchance to love one more time,
Would they fear Love's bitter pain
Or, would they think the pain sublime?

I've always chosen love each time!

                            Timothy I. Brumley

    Excellent poem...felt the pain...why does love cause so much pain? It is a good it all worth it. Thanks for sharing.

    Sometimes we do fear the pain associated with falling in love, but look around and you'll find some happy, long-term marriages. I'm glad the trepidation hasn't caused you to close the door to new love, Timothy. Hopefully, one day you'll find true happiness and appreciate it even more because of the past experiences. Best wishes, Carolyn
