The greatest love yields the greatest pain

August 14, 2010 § 13 Comments

My fingers are bleeding
But I’m still picking up the pieces
The tears are obscuring my sight
But I’m still searching
Feeling for my shattered heart
My shins and knees absorb the tiny shards
Slicing my insides as they slice the outside
My whole body afire as my heart beats uncontrollably fast
Spreading these razors like a combusted star
Spreads out into the infinite
Back bent in pain with bloody palms
I now realize just how big my heart was for you
Holding the remnants of a broken heart
My hands are overflowing
So I try to shove the splinters
Back into the sinkhole in my chest
But my body rejects the pieces
Like it rejects an infection
No longer recognizing the tiny grains as being me
Yet there I am on the floor
Still collecting every last piece
Leaving bloody smears and hand prints
As a testament to what I set myself up for
The greatest love yielding the greatest pain
