Pain ravaged his heart
with teeth of savage spite, Crushing it with love’s gleeful bite,
His body crippled, unwilling to fight.
Author’s note: Because some aches are too emotional they become physical. Don’t avoid it – breathe that agony in. Let it inspire you instead of falling prey to what’s easy – giving in, giving up and staying down after you’re beaten. Because you are never really beaten until your life has reached its end – not really.
