Love Worth Fighting For


Give me a love that’s worth fighting for.
A love that’s secret.
Unknown to shadow and soul.
Someone that spirals context out of control.
Taking much needed senses and breaking iron defenses,
at the mere mention of their name.
A love that’s impossible to tame that relies on heart and soul rather than the logical brain.
Give me a love to entertain.
To name.
To maim.
To keep me sane.
To love me over and over again.
Give me a love to save me from becoming a
plain Jane without a claim.

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
