Fire Hard love is sometimes a flash and sometimes a
s e a s o n
.

It is people, mostly, but sometimes a place and rarely a thing

Hard love marks you with fiery brand, searing your heart and spirit and soul, invisible to bystander, but forever unforgettable.

Hard love demands surrender and imposes decision. 

Hard love is in-spite-of living and always forgiving.

Hard love transforms who you were into who you'll become.

Hard love e n d u r e s.

Hard love hurts.

And one time,

hard love opened its arms

and died on a cross.

5 minute friday
Written in about five minutes, in response to Lisa Jo's "Five Minute Friday" and Amy's "Five Minute Breakfast Poems."  As soon as I saw Lisa Jo's prompt, this sucker came pouring out and I knew it'd be a fit for both.
