Despite the warnings

Life became caustic

Swallowing me alive  

I somewhat subsist

Beneath the bruises

Where all love dies

And all pain survives

As if it’s taken over

Replaced my purpose

Drowned my last hope

Set my dreams on fire

Blanketing me in chills     

Realizing I lost myself

As I dared to love…you

  1. Ahh Yes the all encompassing love that causes us to lose sight of all that matters, sadly including ourselves. Once recovered it is a lesson well learned. Many Blessings.
