Intensity

it was in the sky
it was in the stars

it was in my heart
and there it shone

steady
gentle

but at times it faltered
at times it broke my heart

that breaking that is sweet
and treasured

that kind of breaking
that I run to

with open arms
again and again

how have you caught me,
spoken to my very core?

how have you created this moment,
both brutal and beautiful?

is there any way to bear it,
when it is here?

is there any way to bear it,
when it is gone?
