To Truly Love

To love one
Shadowed by the crust
On your bandaged heart
Under your broken cage
Covered by your tearing skin

To love one
To the extent needed
Clenching on to life
Becoming one with pain
Shedding tears of agony
Blessed by your mothers
Fathers
Uncles
Priests

To love one
And not look back
To love
And not regret
Send me a picture
For I need to see
Become I can do
Send me a pock
A pick
A shaft
A mine
Send me a heart
Capable of more than its own
