A Leg Of Love - Poem by Anthony Charles King

the courage to love is like a razor to the throat..

... you can sense that the edge is sharp
and you know the flesh will open

but if you slide it across fast enough
you dont feel the pain

a wise man once said;
'love is a three-legged dog from hell'!
i think he almost had it

....but it makes me wonder if he knew how the dog lost the leg
in the first place.
