Love and Death

I love all of you I embrace the beauty of the universe I live in darkness I smile as I cry I'll make you laugh, as part of me dissolves Now I leave you As I must die

The outside smile is the armor that protects the inside grief and torment . That which one does not want exposed to others. I once spent decades doing that type of protection. One can reason, its my fight alone and I do not want to burden others with it . Yet burdening outside people(getting help) often is the key to victory. Fantastic write my friend!!!

Dear Arthur, I admire the irony in this poem. You "smile" while crying and make her laugh even as part of you "dissolves." Beautifully written! Love, Carolyn

Oh....Arthur, this is beautiful, but...oh so sad. :( I wonder what inspired you to write this piece. I'm glad you did, though.
