Why does it still hurt?




Unspoken words,
screaming loudly.
Unflinching gaze,
piercing through.
The soul stirs,
broken as it is,
as i witness the 
monster in you...

I try to hold him,
pacify and sooth,
words fall out
shallow and curt,
Monster raises its
ugly head again,
I wonder to myself,
why does it still hurt?

I wonder why can't 
i let you go,
Despite the hurt and 
emotional pain,
I find my answer
as i gaze back,
Behind the monster
i see you and your love
and its still the same!

  1. There are times poetry stares back at you as you stare at the lines. Something stirs in you and you can't tell what it is. The words swirl with the answer yet hold it back from you. Face of love lurking behind the monster? Come, tear me apart and let us be at peace!

    1. It is! But the time when the monster is asleep and the human awake, its worth it!Unless and until the monster hurts you!Then you just get up and leave!
