Gentle Geneviève

.

Why can

There not

Be love

Without

Heart break,

The million

Small deaths

Before death?

.

Why must

Joy be

Balanced

By sorrow?

.

Must we

Ascended

Mountains

On the same

Path leading

Home to

The abyss?

.

There is

No safety,

Even in the

Heart of

True love.

.

Respite

Resides 

Only

Beyond

The veil.
