G-L-O-R-I-A  In Love

Gloria met a man
who suffered from the war

she thought
that she could heal him

but the damage
was too much

for sex and love
to fix him

though the heart
be willing

the mind
must acquiesce

she did her best
not to give up

he struggled
with happiness

the war
left such a mess

had enough of love

to last a lifetime
she took off

her prosthetic legs at night
to walk in dreams
