"Everyone says love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love. But in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again." - unknown

This news – so sudden –
Can't be true.
A trick, a joke:
Something fake
Created for pleasure,
Designed for pain.
It Didn't Happen
Is your mantra,
'Cause denial is
Your Novocaine.
Their arms surround you,
Words of comfort
Escape between tears.
You duck away,
Run, run like she
Told you to run
That night that
Seems so long ago.
It Didn't Happen –
They're pretending.
The folds of black
That drape the others –
No reason why,
Nothing wrong.
Glass breaks:
Someone can't take it,
Angry – All My Fault.
You fall to your knees,
She wouldn't leave,
She promised.
It can't be,
This isn't so …
You'll wake up tomorrow,
And so will she –
Back in your arms.
See, she'll laugh, Not True!
You didn't drink
That strawberry wine,
She didn't scream, cry,
That car never crashed.
She can't be dead.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem about a book I read where the guy is dating this girl, and one night she was going to stay with him but had to leave. She promised she'd be back the next evening. Well, in the middle of the night, she got in a car accident..and died. The guy couldn't accept it because she'd said she would be back..

If all else perished and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.
