Within Your Arms – A Love Poem

Within Your Arms

I used to be afraid
of them
and then today I wondered
what on earth possessed me
to fear
cowards
using their own warped
vision of religion
as a shield.
I could write a book
of poems
about cowards and barbarians but
I think I’ll pass
this time
and let your arms
enfold me.
