Exquisite Pain

Exquisite Pain

i didn’t know what to ask for
but surely it wasn’t this:
the polishing of the heart
with such exquisite pain

when you are away
i am parched and ablaze
my eyes burning
only to see your face

when you are here
i become terrified of death
who could look at you, as i do
and still hope to live?
