Poetry: Love Poems


Exhilarating agony,
A pain that tells me life is real
And I'm a part because I feel.

A burst of sun that fills my eyes
Until unbidden tears appear,

A delicate and rare delight,
Exotic drink of many tastes
From which no one can be distilled.

A joy that fills a bitter void
I crave it,
    And it hurts to crave,
Yet gladly would I be its slave.
