I Believe in Love

I Believe in Love

I believe in love’s power
To transform hearts
Lubricating from inside and out
When applied in liberal doses
Slathered like lotion,
Smoothing where roughness once lived

I believe in love’s power
To overcome wounds
Inflicted with malice or none
Sticks and stones breaking bones
And spirits,
Throwing up a shield

    1. Thanks, Anna. I love it when the words call up different images. xoA
