All That Hurts


All that hurts
stares at me
with beautiful
glossy eyes

They stare
reminding me
that their beauty
were never mine
and those lips
once intimate
now speak
with a casual tone

All that hurts
holding hands
in a grip
as comfortable
as a lullaby
now caress the face
of another cheek
I guess
more deserving
than mine

All that hurts
lies naked and warm
in the bed
of another man
kissing and nuzzling
the curve of a neck
different than I
combining sweat
and moaning erotically
sex more passionate
unlike my apathetic mind

All that hurts
is covered in a layer
of indifferent snow
while the Autumn leaves
die

But I'll never
let you know
so do I
