"Forgiveness" by me. Acrylic paint and glitter nail polish on heavy paper.

Days of sleep

Many tears

To love me

I must forgive you

Doubts

Mistrust

Hatred

Hurt me more

than you

Depression

will not win

You are forgiven

I am a bit wiser

Love takes a hit

but

survives.

      "Love takes a hit but survives" We all have been "survivors" at one time or more in our lives. Despite the scars we eventually heal after learning to forgive. Love this poem.

      Gypsy, thank you for the comment and votes! Love can be trying and this heart is still a little damaged. We are working on it.

      Love is the one feeling in this world... if personified and spoken off... the man who can take all the bullets and bombs on himself and still live to tell the tale and wait for another!

      Beautiful write!

      Love always survives if we want it to. How many hits have we taken over a lifetime and still...we keep moving forward until we find true love.

      Love your poetry my friend!
