Sustained Love

When your heart with love is sustained
It cannot be kept locked and contained
When the person you love is pained
The love glistens with the tear ingrained.

When your heart with love is sustained
It cannot be kept locked and contained
The deep yearning for friendship kind
Begets loving soulful friends, refined.

When your heart with love is sustained
It cannot be kept locked and contained
You offer whole of yourself, with soul to mankind
Only those sans love grab all—so unkind.

    Refrains of lines one and two,
    sustained love will not be contained,
    then the fitting climax in the last two lines.
    Very beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    When hearts overflow with love, truely we are in a state of bliss and make many lives blissful. I feel that your verse flows from the fulness of a loving heart! I do love them! ! (Report) Reply
