Love Hurts - Poem by Joseph Tanner

Punching the wall until I see red,
My fist is thumping,
Not hurting has much as I.
Love holds you tight,
Until the very last breath.
Crumbled on the floor,
Surrounded by a deadly silence,
Only the wails of my soul can be heard.
Ended in seconds with careless thought,
While love last a lifetime.
When the tears have crystallized,
All emotions released,
I see clearly now.
A love I can’t live with or without,
Every second my thoughts consumed by you.
Now I sit thinking what have I done?
Through the hate and fear of losing him,
I find myself wanting him more now than ever.

    the intricate majesty
    of going forth into love,
    then crashing down
    the bottom
    not in sight
    the heart still yearning
    the confusion finally
    ruling all
    a fine poem
