The Suffering

My heart
is still mine
I know this
because it hurts so much...

The past speaks to me
take it from me
It tugs at my spine
I want to just run...

I have always been good
at walking away from love
through rejection
I have learned to reject...

I wear my armor
like a warrior
I should suffer
my hurt so silently...

When love stabs you
is it wrong
to feel pain?

How can she love me
if she doesn't know
what hurts me?

Maybe this is love
being vulnerable
allowing someone in

So far in
they can hurt you
but also give you everything...

Maybe love
is like a knife
we cling to it

grasp it
until the blood flows

Is this love?
being crazy about someone
no matter how much they hurt you?

I am still here
choosing to love
not be a victim
but a victor

I choose to love
let the flames begin...
