Treacherous Stride

Unsteady stride, feeling weak, deflates any thought of pride. I have to pull it 
together, find my stride.

Caught with my guard down, never saw it coming, the blow to my heart was 
painfully numbing. Feel like I'm stuck on a merry-go-round, going in circles, never 
gaining any ground.

I've been smitten by love many times in my life, but never before been cut to the 
bone by such a cruel knife.

    Oh I do so agree. Love can be so wonderful and so cruel at the same time. Strange thing. Great write here. God Bless, JB

    Yes, love can cut to the bone sometimes. I've been hurt by love in the past, as I'm sure most people have. You describe those awful feelings of love's unkind cuts all-too-well. A fine write. Regards, Robert.
