Love #1

Love, love will change the world?

The heart shrouded
pulls the threads
dangling from the sun.

Mother always told her children
to be kind
but never loved enough.

Father said to strike back
or else be struck
lose more than could be handled.

Either solution leaves
gaping holes
heat escapes from broken skin.

Light turned off
love burned out
hope snuffed away.

Clouded by pretend play
the children ramble on
learning new ways.

Faith, faith to bandage the sorrow?

Poetry
