• Love is a knife's blade
    Flesh wound left naked and bare
    Life's blood set free from vein's hold
    Anger's tempered whetstone sharp
    Yet pain subsides mental sheath
    Lust filled grip to stabbing hilt
    Left thrust in hollow breast
    The shield of heart felt remorse
    Passion mended loving intent
    Masterly crafted yarns blocked
    End game of truth's brace
    Battered emotion of entwined beauty
