Love hurts, love destroys
Love bends and crushes us
Taking our breaths, leaving us aching
More alone than we were.
Torn apart by the pain, weak
Emotions shredded, soul empty
Yearning and gasping
For something we no longer have.
Like a fish out of water
No, it doesn’t.
Love heals and it fills
It transforms and renews
Creating beauty out of the crushed
Elating sunken souls.
Bridging broken hearts
Fading out the pain and anger
Thrilling the mind, body and soul
Becoming our strength and direction
Becoming our light and joy
But, it hurts.
Are you the perfect lover?
Could you swear that you could do everything right
And absolutely never hurt the one you love? No?
Truth is, Love doesn’t hurt, people do
For we’re imperfect where love is
And our concepts of sanity, never make us free.
And where love is supposed to let us live
We treat it like death itself
Scared to receive life from the thing that defines it
