Are you a perfect lover?

Love hurts, love destroysLove bends and crushes usTaking our breaths, leaving us achingMore alone than we were. Torn apart by the pain, weakEmotions shredded, soul emptyYearning and gaspingFor something we no longer have. Like a fish out of waterNo, it doesn’t. Love heals and it fillsIt transforms and renewsCreating beauty out of the crushedElating sunken […]

This man feels alone and tiredAching for rest, but he can’tHe’s stuck in […]
