Treasure Island

Anne Unknown

Cruel, sweet love

I thought I had an empty heart,
no love that pumps through my vaines at every heartbeat.

I thought I was hollow,
condemned to feel only pain,
or contain no emotions at all.

I was wrong,
I know the truth,
I feel it.

I can love,
love every inch of you,
and crave your touch.

I was wrong,
now, I feel love,
but without purpose.

The time I have to spend near you is numbered,
I see the moving boxes getting filled,
and my room becoming empty,
and know, that I won't be able to make you love me,
in such a short time.

Oh, I wish it false,
but the airplane tickets are booked,
and soon I will be thousands of miles away,
no hope left for this love.

I am also glad,
glad that in the short period of time I knew you,
I got to spend so close.

Love is, as always, as hurtful as it is beautiful.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
