Awful ~ roses of love

“SOMETHING AWFUL!!!” a poem, a.k.a.: “Awful Don’t Stand A Chance Against LOVE!” 23 Aug. 2019 (Freya’s Day)

If something AWFUL happens, and you might NEVER find out,

I COULD HIDE IT! or lie! so you will never have to pout!

But I’d only do that IF I LOVE YOU T H I S M U C H !

I can move mountains, for the thought of your touch,

For your smile and smell – and how you make me feel well!

I can go into The Underworld (The Unconscious Mind?) and rescue you from H – L L!

I CAN BEG – BORROW – or – LIE,

Or trick, even Satan, with a wink of my eye,

Because LOVE DOES WHATEVER IT NEEDS,

To help to keep you as happy as possible! So, IT WEEDS,

OUT! AWFUL, TERRIBLE THINGS,

And fresh roses, fine wine – and lots of kisses IT brings!
