Love hurts

My heart beats within

all through it lives without

Love the one thing I need most

It hurts but yet I live

to live without love and I ponder

Why bother to live at all?

Nothing makes sense

Nothing matters

It’s the one true thing that makes me happy

But also the one thing that always seems to cut at my heart with a dull knife

in the face of god whose only goal in life is to do such a thing

And then my tears do fall

down the face that so wants

to be touched by masculine hands

That long to do so then

I wake and see him
