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.

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.
If you're short on time, lacking inspiration and/or would enjoy thematic writing, you have got to check out these Friday morning writing prompts; I love the gals behind them and how they lead my writerly heart!
This is beautiful.
