Stung By Your Love - Poem by David Andre' Klopper

March 25 and I heard you were still alive,
So I sent a policeman,
Asked him to tell a lie,
'Love is giving someone the power,
Power to destroy you, '
Then I took your love, and ground it into dust,

But I was stung by your love, and,
Your inspiration from above,
Through my tears of shame,
I had no one else to blame,

Saw a spark and smashed it into dark,
I felt the sting, every tear a flood,
My hands were covered in your blood,
Turned to look one last time,
Through the dirt and grime,
There you were smiling up at me,
Love filled eyes brimming with tears,
Washing away my hate filled fears,

Now I see the bitter tears,
They were all about my fears, now,
Your love has set me free,
You gave me the power and it was no lie,
The strength of your love I do not deny.
