Touched by an Angel


We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness

    'And suddenly we see
    that love costs all we are
    and will ever be.
    Yet it is only love
    which sets us free. '

    Absolutely fantastic! Noone could have said it better!
    Please if you find the time read a couple of my poems..I would really like your opinion.

    Best regards

    thank you- a fulfilling perspective on love
    Love does arrive
    on a myriad gilded horses
    sets to shame our daily grosses
    enlivened with melancholy and it's farces (Report) Reply
