can it hurt when you haven’t loved?
can it hurt this much?
only those who have loved and lost know what hurt feels like, they say
then why does it hurt?
why are there tears in my eyes?
am i only feeling sorry for myself?
for not having loved
shouldn’t i be lucky?
shouldn’t i be without sorrow?
it pricks my fingers
sends shivers to my bones
contracts my heart
love does that to you, they say
but i haven’t loved
so what is this?
