Love's Double Edge


Love has a double edge
It fills the heart with pledge
Empowering both to dream ...
Strengthening every part of being

But it also creates a vulnerability
Which has its very own instability
For when our hearts are worn outside
They become prime targets for a slide

And emotions twisted into tight curls
Then become ragged when unfurled
And the love we expressed well in a pledge
Unveils itself ... showing its double edge
