Joy & Great Pain

I’ve heard love is a garden you grow with great care.

I’ve been told it’s excitement, you brave if you dare.

Compared to the edge of a dangerous knife.

A leech that attaches and drains you of life.

They say love is heaven, down here on this earth.

They’ll tell you it’s fate you’re linked to at birth.

I’ve heard it’s a cell where you only see bars.

I’ve been told it’s a language spoken on mars.


I strongly believe love is all of these things.

Love is a chain and a grand pair of wings.

Love is essential, for growing in knowledge.

Once you embrace it, you graduate college.


I’ve felt crippling pain from a love that’s gone wrong.

I’ve felt a slow drain from a love that’s been long.

My heart’s known pure laughter, filled up with love.

I’ve felt pure conviction in love from above.

I’ve known elation from a love that just started.

I’ve known longing from a love that departed.


Yes, all of my life, I’ve known joy and great pain.

I can tell you in knowledge, that love is a strain.

Our connection to others is what makes us whole.

Every person I’ve loved, has molded my soul.

Love gifted me laughter, babies, and growth.

I would do it again, is my solemn oath.


Don’t live your life lonely, afraid to be hurt.

There’s much you will miss, if love you avert.

You’ll experience pain, I can promise you this.

But inside this pain, are things you can’t miss.


Love is great pleasure, and pleasure is pain.

Love’s not only sunshine, slow dance in the rain.

To love you must trust, in trust, you gift it away.

Listen my friend, love is changing each day.

All my love,

In solitude, I’ve become strong. There is no place, where I belong. I’m working toward a future goal. A moment where I will be whole. It’s hard to make it on my own, Though I do best here, all alone.

Someone Broken Like Me In days long ago, My love used to flow. I would gift it away, A high cost to pay. Life’s beaten me down. I’m broken and bound. Afraid to be hurt, I’m braced and alert. ~ I’m not

I am from a state of sadness, an era of abuse, and eyes filled with fear. I’ve journeyed to forgiveness, a state of happiness, and vision that is clear. I’ve turmoiled in anger, a state of regret, and
