among the stars, love burns

By FadedBlues

a heart that has been broken
will never fully repair
the pain is great
the memory is greater
a binding love
a love that is truly immortal
can only be written in the stars
where else might it be scribed?
on parchment? on leaves of linen?
on a thing so dispassionate
as a computer screen?
I have desired. I have lusted.
I have loved.
among these, love is
a fragile flower
a genuine grace
the greatest gift
we are naked, and we are hungry,
and our thirst is a savage beast.
where may we be comforted,
except by love’s hand
there is hurt
in every man and woman
who has loved and lost
I am a poet ~
there must be more of it in me

    You probably have more love but also more pain, just because you're a poet. All on you is intensified and remains.
