Word Candy….

When did it become
a foolish thing
to love wholly,
 submit to abandon
embrace the risk of passion?
Who taught us 
to give, instead
a calculated sort of love
measured out in teaspoons
rationed by fear?
Despite convention,
I wish for you
the blessing of a broken heart
the grace to experience
the beautiful, broken now
