In Difference

The love is the risk- It is the love that makes us risk Beyond sound and reason, all care we tempt Baiting with hook and tangled lear Knowing gravely it will end Yet resistant, resilient, rebellious to force it To do all we can to coerce it To prove somehow that we are worth it Yet it sikes you out, plays tricks with the heart Makes sense than fails sense and creates doubtless dark In an instant all faith is lost Yet over and over again we risk it Applying danger to that which wisely could have been prevented Because we needed to know and feel that we existed Just once and to someone who seemed different.

I am at a loss for words at how this poem conveys so much of how I feel. Simply beautiful!
