Lovers Who Suffer

Press their pain
Deep into their hearts
Because they know something
Waits for them at that point
Of pain.
It could be something sweet
Something terrible like a secret
The shock is worth remembering.
I thought your glance
Was worth a thousand affairs
In your arms because your eyes
Made me believe
I could feel again.
Perhaps I was wrong,
I don’t know and I do
Want to know
Because I love you.
