Softness and Power and Something 'bout You: Love, Day 5

love is the softness of an argument
in another town,
you walk the early morning streets
before returning to the hotel,
asking how this softness you feel
holds such power,
so much power you have returned,
and he has no answer,
only that it holds power over him also,
and the softness of that admission
is the answer to your question.
hot springs, years ago

  1. Yes. Yes, I'm nodding in agreement. There is such amazing power in the softness.

    Pink petals are surely the right visual. :)
