A poem about love in all forms and trying to hold on.!.#$%^&*()_+?>+

Love's almost dead,
barely hanging by a thread.
The threads about to break,
please let there be a mistake.
Down on my begging knees,
I beg of God please.

I'm hanging on that thread,
even though I prefer love instead.
I'm swinging like Tarzan on a vine,
towards the rising sunshine.
Blinded I can't see that tree,
but it can see me.

I hit the tree a long time ago hard,
it almost knocked love from my heart.
Almost before I got a good start,
trying to love almost tore me apart.
My heads still ringing,
but I won't quit swinging.
As long as there's a thread,
I'll hold on until I'm dead.

Powerful write, Gem; well penned! BRAVO!

(((HUGS))) and much love (and many prayers), your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)

Being a hero isn't easy-especially when the kryptonite is love itself. Imagine the little ones looking for that hero- a hero who has to dismiss his owns hurts in order to help others. Brothers in an Eden which often seems so misty-yet its clarity is getting closer. Enjoyed.
