Looking For Love

Love that sees your weakness,
your dirty face and heart
puts its arms around you
as you make a start
facing up to guilt and fears,
giving love again,
seeing your life is a gift
to live it well and sane.
That is the only kind of love
you should be looking for
someone at the gate of hell
who knows the exit door.

    Great poem! I especially love the part where you say someone at the gate of hell who knows the exit door!
