Ache

(Image Source: http://www.dreamstime.com)


You can twist my wrists
And polish those bones
Carve them as you like
Shape them into cones
Then gather the times
Which betrayed my smile
You can sell the rhymes
That tears have piled

And I won't cry
I won't break
'cause I have learnt
To romanticize this ache
