Love’s Lesson Learned
Through the years the armor
builds and grows in strength. The sweet
taste of trust and beauty fall martyr
to the whims of fate. Hope, shrouded in defeat
is left battling from the ground
to hold the beauty of love’s chimes
for the heart to hear. But bitterness surrounds
the soul, and in the essence of these times
nothing can truly set it free
except an offering of selflessness, burned
on the alter of chance, opening the way to ecstasy
through loyalty, and love’s lesson learned.
The armor falls away as the first
lesson of pain is replaced with love not curst.
