Loving Beyond Feeling

Phoenix Rising invites us to explore the sound of love; the sound in emotion...

On some days
The love she feels
Morphs into a monster
As something
Foreign reels
Ferocious as love,
These fork-tongued foes
Remind her
She cannot simply rely
On what she feels,
But knows

How is it, velvet touch
Can turn harsh
As scratches on chalkboard
And what she thought
She knew of love
Mocks loud
Where demons lord?
To simply rely
On feelings shows
How little of love
She really knows
