In memory of Thomas Nunes 9/28/2020, a poem by Pejj Nunes titled “The Pain of Love.
The Pain Of Love.
Caged, the heart holds no waking song of joy.
The pulse has slowed, tho not gone. It carries on____.
How can I express this? What is there to say?
My quiet place is needed now, how long?
Until I can replace the screams in my head.
They____become too loud because your not here!
Tears, too many! The fear is my heart will bleed dry,
If it could? What will become of me? I am still here!
Nothing left but me. Where what was, is no longer mine! Has gone!
Life as one,___now alone___just one. Caged head and heart,
Undefined. Least I shout too loudly to let out the pain.
Love felt deep within bursts outward and is sucked in again,
It cuts deep, and now it weeps because I am without you.
I find the words within that I can express what was for release.
I mourn my loss, only to treasure sadness, and tenderly care for it?
Let it have its place within my heart so I survive without you?
This hurts! It hurts too much and not enough!
