The Ones I Love

THIS HURTS
ive been run over by a jeep
ive smashed in the mouth with a bat
had a fractured eyesocket
multiple face fractures
whole left side of my face fractured and swollen
nose cruched, broken, and broken again
BUT THIS HURTS
my heart is breaking
all my life has been on the roads less travelled
i've met hundreds, i dare say thousands of people
only a handful i've  called friends, kindred souls
the ones i love
why 
why
why do i lose the ones i love
lose them forever
i always lose the ones i realy love

THIS HURT IS TOO PAINFUL
run me over, shoot me, shove me off a cliff
anything
just stop this heart hurt
it's gonna break for good someday
a heart can only break so many times

This poem was inspired by, and is dedicated to Larry Gibb
7/22/51 to 12/13/11
He possessed the National Defense Service Medal as well as the Vietnam Campaign Medal 
Also dedicated to my sister Renee Keller deceased 1/24/12
