Lesser of Two

If given the choice between
Blood drawn from the knife’s
sharply honed edge
or
Love dying at your feet in
a pile of disbelief
Which is the lesser
pain
Does the visible scar
Which remains continue
its throbbing
no
The heart scars thick
with memories of a forever
promise, relentless aching, every
beat
unimaginable the pain
