I remember the first time
You broke my heart
And I travailed
Living a pain aloud
I’d not felt before.
I didn’t realize I
Had fallen so deeply.
Attempting to still
Thrive in quicksand
I was unaware Music’s
Most dissonant dark chords
Could feel that way.
It was then that
I learned Love could
Appear full of life
And somehow be it’s
Most twisted song.
