Tears, Heart broken 

For the pain of another. 

And they push away 

The love that intends
To find a way. 

The ache makes you heave 

As you try to breath

Gasping for air, why 

If not for some cosmic purpose

Are we compelled to care

We say all kinds 

of stupid things

Defending our pride

Grasping for love

Hoping to be seen

Real Beauty hurts

It burns and brands 

The beholder

There is no escape 

But to sear off the heart. 

I will not do that

I will feel and I will falter

I will grasp and cling

Ache and burn

Because someday love will claim me.
