Surrender is momentary

When in the ecstatic gasps of love

Nobody tells you about the after effects –

How everything you’ve let go

Will bite into your skin, making you

Cry out in pain, close your eyes

And beg for mercy, for no judgement.


You never knew your chest would ache

No matter how far you stretch that smile

Never knew familiar things suddenly stop

Imparting comfort, and stare at you

With round, strange eyes.


I tell you do not surrender

Don’t even give up an inch of yourself-

Those little parts are so integral

To hold you together.

Let go of people if you need to,

Give up things that don’t please you –

But hold on to you, you need to.
