Le douleur exquise

Cerebral desires paint warmth upon this bitterly cold canvas,

with brush strokes from such vivid emotional pain, plain to see,

leading to infinite beauty becoming the ‘true’ masterpiece,

as heartbreak caresses the once sweet meadow of opportunity erased this very day,

where dear moments may never be matched,

and a life yearned for, more than any other,

manufactures into something so desperately out of reach.
