Know the Joy – a poem

“Know the Joy”
a poem by Jeremy C Kester

Steal my heart,
Fail the strings of love,
that bind this bitter life
to a memory of some worse.
A taste feeling sharp of the tongue
of loss of pain and loneliness
to remember of joy and passion
but it cannot find the partnered.
What will life make of it?
I want to feel the pain,
to know the joy.
But to forget it all again,
and start another day.
