Why do we welcome the pain of love?



Why does a hard love hurt?

I asked my burdened heart

And this answer came:

Because love is standing

Rooted to a soaring precipice

Naked to the high winds there

Vulnerable to every gust

And beset by terrible phobias

But dazzled! So dazzled! --

Why do we run to this pain?

(Dart like maddened things, eager

To inhabit that cryptic space?)

I asked my despairing heart

And this answer came:

Because better the windswept promontory

With danger and a sweeping view

Of the mystery of those distant hills

Than stumbling, sightless and alone

Over rock-strewn terrain below

No unguent for the burn.

I enjoyed your conclusion "No urgent for the burn" Hey, not bad for a Harpy! I liked how you kept reaching in on this one as if you refused to submit to your first conclusion. As if to say no that's not it. It only hurts so much because I was meant to feel the pain. Touche! Enjoyed this fantastic read, Jennifer. Tim
