Her Love Exit -


She spoke about Love as though it were a ghost
that haunted Her heart, a gobblin of garrulous grind & grime,
a spector of weakness that if caught
in the peryphery of One's soul would intensify
as a headache storm swells inexorably into the daytime,
a terror of exposure to vulnerability wrapped
in the voice of a violin chasing a child,
if confronted, it would vanish in the blood of imagination,

oddly, She gave Love to others like a lesson of learned loss,
She couldn't help to care,
wouldn't surrender to it,
but couldn't deny Love to those who believed in it,
a painful condition of starvation for sentient salvation,
an Angel of abused afterthoughts,
I wonder now if She knows
that Love is the metal of Her armor -

J.A.B.

    Yeah Eileen, love is our best defense. It can be easy to be suspicious of love. J.A.B.

    I shall stay as much of an Angel as possible wearing my most sturdy armor. The vulnerability is the downfall sometime :)

    This is so brilliant and it touches my heart so deeply. If only she knew the ways you speak of her...She sounds like a beautifully wounded person.

    and wondering who is who. If I am me or if I am her or if I am a mix of the two. Because I can feel her pain and her joy, and I can see through her eyes...Yes my friend I do understand it well. Its a shame that I do so well. One of my all time favorite writes by you.

    Powerful imagery..."a painful condition of starvation for sentient salvation", perhaps this person had been hurt numerous times and this "metal of Her armor" is her only defense? Still it would confine and restrict others. You've been busy with your writes, while I've been lax and lethargic.:) You've much to share, Justin; you are doing well to do so! Love, Mikki

    Armor can certainly perform in that capacity Mikki, but at least She has something worth protecting, preserving, modeling for others - no need to to rush the writes my friend, just stay reverent of inspiration and when the time is right you will regain the miestro's wand - thanks for the love - J.A.B. %
