With Love

Those days,
when it all comes crashing down,
and logic whispers …
but the roar of misery is greater,
and though friends call round,
the pain lingers and,
though the tent of joy is rent wide,
the seamstress you need most,
is self-understanding,
cum amore.

  4. WordPress really needs to add a Love button! This is my kind of dark chocolate! To be savoured, one piece at a time.

  5. This is so beautiful, Paul. I get such a sense of compassion from reading it. You have a lovely way of expressing on loving. I appreciate it! And, if you ever want to contribute for Forgiving Fridays, that would be wonderful. Love is key to forgiveness (and self-understanding helps too.)

    Blessings to you. Happy Wednesday, Paul!
    Debbie
