A Short History Of Pain

No dream
could ever be
as sadistic as
the swift brutal pain
known as love.

Falling in love
often results
in radioactive dreams
and a festering liver.

As many, if not more,
crimes and murders
are committed in
the name of love
than out of anger and hatred.

Falling in love
is like having a dragon
stagger out of the sky
and fall into your lap.
