|A painful experience of love lost, the thorns remain to remind us and maybe to help us to treasure, protect and value true love when we find it. The Tea-bag lady! Jackie <> <|

|..it's strange how unrequited love gives us pleasure..I've often wondered why so many poems have been written because of the pain etc. what is it in our humaness that requires pain to know love..I ask you..is that love or is it just desire gone haywire..and so we cry..why?..Why indeed...
Beautiful write..you have an enormous capacity for love....

|Sometimes even a thorn in the heart
from the one we love is better than having no trace of them.
Your poem tugged at my heart and reminded me of long ago.My thorn is still in tact, can't remove it,part of me now.Your poem touched me,deeply.Beautiful words.

"You left the thorn
to bleed inside my heart
so vulnerable to ridicule
was I the foolish chaser"
