Fearful Love

Spiteful spats split
the heartís gentle pulse
and shuttered, brittle plans.

For as the heart desiring
sings soft-soaked ballads
the mind, in shame, decries
repeated volleys - jibes

dispatched from a crooked mouth
twisted in a sneer
while the tender heart cowers,
encircled by heated fear.

Brewing from this tension
seeping through piercing radar,
eyes meet and hands, tentative
to a delicate finger tip - touch.
