Love hurts…

When the pain erupts
from within my chest,
it is not that all has been lost.

When the rising tide
of anguish devours me,
it is not that your love was wanting.

When the tears roll down
like rain on a stormy day,
it is not that I have stopped loving.

When the red of anger
threatens to burst forth,
it is not because of hatred;

When all this happens
It is because I have loved
And in loving we are hurt;

When you love so truly,
Loving for now and forever,
it cannot be simply switched off;

When you love so deeply,
these things must be endured,
or we should not love at all.
