how love kills

A heart
falls in love
with everything and everyone
in the entire universe.
It pulls
like a magnet
all things breathing
with merciless passion.
It draws
powerful lust
from four corners
of the world,
from the north to the south
from the east to the west
feeding off their energy
missing nothing,
in between.

A heart
that absorbs
your time, your space,
leaving nothing behind
for you and me.
Our remnants
clutch emptiness
till there’s nothing left to do
but to sit and watch us
sucked into a bottomless

      1. Hurt is absorbed by many different people in many different ways. Some hurt others and some try the best they can to avoid that unnecessary pain. I lost my wife & son in 2001, so my pain/hurt is a bit different but still deep hurt.
