pain, desire, love

December 3, 2008
By Ella Capstick, New Hamburg, NY

Love so strong it leaves her vulnerable
Like a mouse in the night air
About to be pounced on
Pounced on by an owl
Pounced on by desire
Desire that over comes her
Desire that reminds her everywhere she turns
Reminds her of something she needs
Something she desires
Something she can never have
Desire causes her pain
Pain like a burn that never stops
Pain like the owl stabbing holes in her heart with its beak
Pain that leaves a scar on her heart
A scar that will remind her
Of that love so strong it left her vulnerable
Of that vulnerability that desire pounced on
Of that pain caused by that desire
Of that owl that will forever stab her heart
