Touched by an Angel

Touched by an Angel

A Poem by Katy

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Excellent descriptive writing that conveys the hesitant fall into love. I most enjoy the push-and-pull of eagerness vs reluctance in your message. The final two lines are well-used, but perfect here (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

True Love, nothing comes close. Is there a missing word from the front of " we dare be brave " ?
Enjoyed reading this, explains love's effect on a person to a tee

No flaws, that one line reads kinda funny to me, BUT, I am as thick as the proverbial brick...
Ending bring solutions to our lifes. Yes we struggle with our self and sometimes we struggle even with joy. You have also nice flow. Just maybe size of letters is too big for me. But otherwise very fine poem.
