Love Hurts So Good

The exquisite pain of falling in love
The heart variously soars and aches
The melancholy pause
I read the weighty words of wise men
And women
I reach for the next moment
It’s never there
Now always usurps the future
While making sport of the past
And so when I met her it all changed
Conventional thinking unraveled
The horrible ecstasy of her absence and presence
I had to spend eternity with her
My unworthiness like a ball and chain
Stumbling, shambling, rambling
But eventually
We mated and forever were
Humbleness finally pervades
The love is still so painful
Because it is never enough
