I am sorry I missed this post until now, and send you many congratulations for your win in the contest. I admired your detailed description of love in this free verse. Your "candle" simile and dramatic presentation are very effective. Here's to love! Hugs- Joan

Liberty, I can certainly understand why this won the contest. Love does encompass many things and you have captured it well. Thank you for sharing. The only critique I have is the red font.. not enough contrast. It is often too hard on anyone's eyes.

Congratulations my friend, you took a First! Beautiful poem, and wise words. Love is so complex and at the same time so very simple. Just living a good, honest life, doing the best we can, is all that life can expect from us.

You know I think I am too late with this review, but not too late to share my feelings. Just fyi, I am one of those who has loved and after 30 years, my wife, my love, decided she needed to check out.

It can be a rough road back to a place where love is central to everything in your life. But then we all have our stories?

    Love that exceptional rating! You, too, huh! I am so sorry, or are you ok with your wife leaving you? That is so hurtful. You and I have gone through similar pain because the love of my life left me after @20 years just up out the sky blue, and I have no idea where he is now. Read my profile and see how many heartfelt poems I wrote about my broken heart. My books have different poems not on fan story. liberty justice STAY STRONG Bar62. Check out my 2 books in my profile about living life longer stronger.

    Liberty Justice, quite a name, a name to live up to! You asked me in your reply, am I OK with my wife leaving me? Like yourself, I went through a fairly extended period of wanting to just end it. Actually I spent most of my time during the last few months of our marriage thinking and reading about taking one's life. I was an avid proponent of "the right to die" movement. You see the reason I was so despondent was because I have Parkinson's disease, which I got at a very young age. PD is extremely nasty disease, it robs you of just about everything that's important to you. It has slowly but steadily taken my mobility, and if that were not bad enough it has robbed me of my ability to speak. When I attempt to engage in a conversation with someone, it's very discouraging. I either speak with a whisper or cannot be at all articulate so that person can understand me. Thank God I discovered that I love to write.Like yourself once I found my muse I proceeded to write all the thoughts and feelings that were in my resovar where I could dump all the pain, anger, rage, and the utter depression that I was drowning in.
    I could go on for a long time, my story just gets better or worse depending on where your standing. I enjoy exchanging life stories, if your interested write me with a piece of your life.

    Peace,
    Bar

    WHOA! OMG! Your story reads similar to mine, except for the Parkinson disease, and right to die events. Do you want to live, now? Why don't you enter the true story you just replied to me as a short story in a contest? Surely, to be a winner. Are you seeing a doctor for your Parkinson? Did you research it online to see if physical therapy other therapies will help? STAY STRONG. I'm here for you if you need someone to talk to. Your friend forever, lol liberty justice

Hi Liberty, lovely artwork and poem! The poem speaks of so many wonderful things that love is and is not. It certainly takes work to keep that spark alive!

From your visual to poetical presentation, the words of your poem dance vibrantly and warmly across the page into every fiber of our hearts.
I love the heart-touching picture and color choices, too, that lend deep emotional beauty to the moment.
You've covered every aspect of love one could imagine, and you've done it with class and exemplary skill.
Thank you ever-so gratefully for the joy of sharing your craft ... I wish you the very best in the contest, too! ~ Richard : )

A very well-written poem about what love is. We cannot only want to have the bright side all the time. There are bad times when we need another's understanding love and acceptance and vice versa.
