Love Defaced (Poem)

By Les Henson

God is love

yet love is often squashed and distorted.

As it is pressed and squeezed

through the wringer of life.

Love defaced is not love at all

it is a caricature of beauty long forgotten.

An ugly distortion of love

as it is intended to be.

Love cannot be attained

like a cheap toy at the fairground.

It costs everything and demands all

for love and sacrifice are one.
