An Observation on Love's Pain

By: Mistress of Word Play

Page 1, We have all felt the sting of love\'s arrows as they dig into our hearts when we love and the other person does not feel the same way. This sums it up for me.

A kiss flees quickly from memory
and is gone without a trace.
Yet the sting of desire burns so deep
and encircles the heart like lace.

A caress leaves trails of fire on the skin
and makes the heart to beat.
Yet the sorrow of a broken heart
feels the pain of love's defeat.
