An Ocean of Pain

How will I hurt you, that
Which I have bargained –
by the softness of my heart

Heavily you come
Blinding me by your Westerly winds
Clinging me –
with the dust of your dusky hue

I have take a lamp
of your dark eyes, that twinkle
My nights, with
Semi transparent looks

How can I be not yours –
that from deep down
You crowbar a nail
Lifting me out of my pain

How will I settle
My heart’s due, that
When I look at your fraility
You mirror an ocean of pain
