I held her softness in my arms
Her hard nipples stabbing my chest
Till the world outside threatened
To burst in through the doors.
Then she shattered in my arms
And vanished like a dream
Her pieces digging into my skin.
Later when she called
And asked if my wounds were bleeding,
Her voice choked with tears of joy When I said, “Yes”.
And the sunlight was washed By gloomy raindrops,
Birds fluttered their wings To dust away the grime,
And people scuttled through
The tunnels of the world
Seeking for happiness,
And love lay quietly sobbing,
Just living for its pain
