The Inevitable Paradox

The warmest
Are also the coldest
The loving
Are
Most hateful
And
Passion is war


Nights are the
Brightest
Cannot love
Without pain
Cannot see
Without strain


Sight is loss
And
Holy is
Equal
To the ugliest

Joy brings
Sadness
Of
Inevitable
Imperfection

The one you cherish
Is the one
That
You ignore
The "favorite"
Is always alone

To get, you give
To live, you kill

The brain
Is
our guide
And our
Worst
Enemy

Sleep is
Rest-LESS
And
Within darkness
Lay the
Shiniest
