24-Love Is

January 19, 2009

Love is a chain
You bear with shame
As you take the blame
For the secrets with no name.

Love is pain.

Love is being captive to fears,
Eyes red from the tears
You’ve held back for years
But now cry.

Love is learning to deny.

Love is giving up the right
To feel safe at night,
Or to put up a fight
Or look like you might.

Love is pretending you’re alright.

Love is trying not to feel
Wound you fear God cannot heal,
Wounds you pray cannot be real
But are.

Love is a bloody scar.

Love is praying to die
While protecting the lie
And not questioning why
The price is so high.

Love is a heavy load.
