aren't the heartbroken the lucky ones?

to have had a love so great

even if for a short period of time

to love and to be loved

if having that is tragic

then give me tragedy


a love worthy of a fight

whether you win or you lose

how lucky are those who have something

that makes saying goodbye so hard


--beautiful tragedy

This is so good, and so true! You should write more, I love both your poems.
Also, if you'd be willing to check out my work I'd really appreciate it! I came here because of one of your comments asking for the same thing.
