Love neither gives or takes but from itself. Be not wiled by fantasies of arrogance. Take no more than is offered by yourself. Leave nothing trapped in tortured irrelevance. Seek not a barter for desires that sue your heart. Worthiness is the only tender that comes due. Suffer willingly the melody of pain it may impart. Bleed joyfully from the wounds that will ensue. As tree branches lift their hopes towards Heaven's door, hands together reaching higher than alone will seek heights that love's imagination most beautifully implores that from a poets words unending ecstasy must speak. Whatever you desire your life to be, may loves reflection be all you see

“Suffer willingly the melody of pain it may impart. Bleed joyfully from the wounds that will ensue.” Very encouraging for those who had given their hearts and had it painfully wounded. Thanks for sharing. Enjoyed. Blessings, RP.

A poet indeed! A magnificent example of how to give and accept love Charlie! You are not only a master poet my friend but a philosopher! This is a keeper, maybe even a framed wall hanging! Though I have little space left with all my five year old granddaughter's drawings on my walls! A Fave for sure. I loved it! : )
