Prayer To Love - Poem by Ivona Sophia

take away our sense of touch
so that we can’t hurt each other
with aimed hits.

take away our vision
so that we can’t wound each other
with contempt.

take away our words
so that we can’t mutually kill,
hitting each other’s marks perfectly.

only leave our wings, love,
so that we will be able to fly far
as far as we can from each other.
