    I see your heart and soul exposed
    in your gentle deep brown eyes
    the trust and love you offer me
    is pure and undisguised

    Life has not treated you kind
    your tortured body trembles with pain
    savage wounds and open sores
    and scars left by a cruel chain

    All your life you never asked
    for more than was your moral right
    to be allowed to love
    and not be trained to fight

    I step closer to the bars
    and met you eye to eye
    the sign says this is your last chance
    tomorrow morning you will die

    I will take you home with me
    to spend your last few years
    and give you the love you deserve
    erase your lifelong fear

    I need you and you need me
    together we will heal
    you love me already
    and my heart is yours to steal


    Adopt a dog... save a life.... have compassion for those that silently suffer...

    Beautiful, real, and personally something I subscribe to.

    Great poem.

    Love is small things... really... not slaying dragons or leaping tall buildings in a single bound... it is the small things...

    Your love wraps me in contentment
    like a morning cup of coffee
    I wake up happy because
    I fell asleep in your eyes

    Your scent is like fresh sheets
    that spent the day dreaming
    on the clothesline
    under the Mimosa's shade

    Your love is freedom
    to fearlessly fly my kite
    and let go of the string

    Fire, clicking 'like' is not enough. This is so touching and beautiful. The Laundry one is so gentle and the imagery in it....
    Wonderful.

    Darren's right. These are all just lovely and the third poem is so meaningful. A love that is strong enough to let go is something special.

    Small sweet and contained. Each poem is meaningful on it's own but could be incorporated into one poem. Outstanding Fire.

    I was going to put them in one poem, but .... I wanted to present each one, on its own, because each one showed a different picture... not part of a whole photograph... Thank you for your kind, thoughtful comments

    I hesitate to workshop these posts. I’ve been on vacation and don’t want to offend. But, hoping Fire would forgive my suggestion, if intrusion. Guess, like haiku, I wouldn’t title these. I liked them. Below is a suggestion:

    Love is to fly
    a fearless kite
    and let go
    when wind dies

    I love this,sas... I am inspired to write a longer poem using this... if I may? Thank you for your comments, they are most welcome and appreciated... I will remove the titles on the three short poems...
