Love Poem: Holding My Breath

Holding My Breath


(As Secretary of State John Kerry and the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrof are talking…)

Hate is circling like a starving vulture over the heads of the innocent 
Waiting for war to unleash its accumulated wrath of destruction 
Providing thus unlimited supply of provisions for warmongers to devour 
While love, frightened, has taken cover fearing to express her concern with a ROAR!
