"Because I knew you, I have been changed for good" AND "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all"

Human hearts are holy to me
So much more sacred to me than any seer’s god up above
You and I can dance and laugh in the rain
And isn’t that special enough?
Maybe there’s more, maybe not
Would it be so bad if this is all we get?
Twisting, turning souls like birds concentric
One within all and all within one
Singing out what we wish to sing
Living tragedies so sad it hurts
Making blood flow that is so painful it’s beautiful
Committing kindness so mighty it makes me cry
Tell me that this isn’t something special, that it’s subservient
To something else, bowing to the breaking will of more
Maybe that’s true, but maybe not…
Lips and eyes and fingertips can do so, so much
Don’t you believe in them, too?

This has to be my favorite poem on TI so far. Its very creative and emotional. I love it. Did it take you awhile to write this or did it just come to you?

I loved reading this! I could pratically hear the speaker saying it, and you did SUCH a good job with the voice and rythmn. Great work!

I thought this was creative and unique. I love how you proposed questions and kind of left them hanging for the reader to think about, especially in the last line. I also like the meaning of it and how it's very emotional :) great job
