If Love Liberates Longings - Poem by John Sensele
If love-on the rebound
Cries for commitment and comfort
Shown when it matters on the ground
To protect and erect for lovers their port.
If love-on the mend
Cries for confidence and credence
Shown when inconsistencies slowly end
To protect and erect an emergency fence.
If love-on the break
Cries for understanding and unalloyed urns
Shown when there's no room for a wreck
To nullify and modify sorry spurns.
If love-on tenterhooks
Cries for growth and greatness
Shown when love stops living in books
To multiply and satisfy gregariousness.
