One day
When we were sitting by the beach
Her arms
Iightly around me
She looked at me
With her golden bronzed eyes
And her freckely nose

She told me
She was in pain
She was only happy
When she was with me
It made me warm
But I quickly asked
What caused her pain
I can feel it on the inside
She replied
While she pointed at her chest
Share it with me
I said
So she took a scoop of her pain
And held into me
It was dark, cold and made me shiver
Are you okay?
No
I wanted to say
But I smiled
Stroke her across her smooth, sunkissed skin
I felt pain
It was pain so painful
A pain I have never felt before
But she only shared it with me
