I started this series to remind myself love has stages and cycles. Since I've only lived long enough to know three of those, I don't know the last stage of love. But I hope you enjoy this series.

Cycles of Love 



Can Two Hearts Form a Circle? 


Two hearts beat, 

two souls connect, 

two lives join. 

Who is to protect 

the strong? 

There's no perfect 

romance in youth. 

Abuse was the suspect. 


Two hearts beat, 

two souls feign, 

two lives separate. 

Was it all in vein? 

I'll be careful of who want enter. 

I'll be watchful of those wanting one thing. 

I won't long to be his center. 


Crushed and wounded 

have hopes from above. 

But, out of the way, 

I shove 

the hand I desperately seek. 

On the wings of a dove 

peace can be found. 

Throw away the kid glove, 

become the woman I'm supposed to be. 

Gave up on love, 

there's no winner at its losing game.
