Touched By An Angel

Rating: 4.4

exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure

ancient histories of pain.

Yes these words for love is do very true. And suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free....these words are so very true. Beautiful expression.
