Author's Notes: Samson is one of the saddest figures in the Bible. Therefore, I officially love him.
This is a vicious cycle in which I live.
Who I hope doesn't feel this way
It doesn't hurt, exactly.
The ache comes not from empty sockets
but rather somewhere deeper, darker
Somewhere he'd sworn he'd keep protected.
But love is blind,
And so too now is he.
The light has gone—
with it the flaming sky
and soft sun in her hair
(framing a face he loved…before)
(framing a face he loves still)
