That sweet surrender

Curious puzzle
Love and death are much the same
When you give your all

I am not heartless
But is life bearable when
Mixed with grief’s cruel sting?

No love without loss
Seductive entanglement
Such sweet surrender

  2. Sweet and stinging, but all the agony is still better than heartlessness.

  4. Accepting the inevitable pain is part of the bargain that we make. The alternative is too bland for imagining.
