I still recall our first poetic glance, dormant pen roused my fingers to dance. Her love was like a cherry blossom tree, which at first blossomed so beautifully. When a tender breeze took each fragile bud, we stood naked, vulnerable to the flood. Broken branches fell, as love became silent, our poems burned in fires, ever so violent. Her absence formed a lawless state of mind, vacant heart bled for memories left behind. Some say sorrow washes away with rain, but in heartbreak, torpid wounds leave a stain. Love is a balance of peace and distress, yet it's something two souls cannot suppress.
Simple Sonnet Silent One Example for what is love contest.

Hi Z...I read this beauty again today and I thought I had commented but couldn't find it so I just wanted to say that it touched my heart and excited me at the same time. Yes, love is certainly a balance of "peace and distress" and I might add "a learning experience". FAVED

"in heartbreak, torpid wounds leave a stain." This is probably for sure; I am glad I do not know, and probably will never know but you certainly know how to put the right words on a page to make people feel and think, Silent One!
