A Poem by Stefano Ianiro

A broken promise, with a gleam of hope.

She’ll write a letter in a cloud of smoke.

Directed to you, a tear for each stroke.

Alone she will sit, with no chance to cope.

I, a man with hope, will someday hold her.

For a taste of love; no wish for power.

To conquer the bad, that haunts her hours.

Will save a brittle soul from turning sour.

You took her for less; in time will lose more.

What one may embrace, you’ve labeled a chore.

Her eyes a home with a sparkling decor.

I’ve never yet met this beauty before.

It’s hope that carries me to her front door.

There's no battlefield more cutthroat, vicious, terrifying and brutal as the field called LOVE. This is awesome. All's fair in love and war, and that's what makes life so interesting. You might even say it makes life worth living

Wow. That's all I have to say is wow.
This poem shows devotion, slight passion, dreams (and like the title) hope. Love it.
