Homemade Resolve

Others may be most unkind
And sting us with their darts,
But only those we love can wield
The knife that cuts the heart.

Characters fade in and out,
Contribute to ther plot,
Deliver lines that survive time
Unitl time we have not.

Friends and lovers come and go
While gently fades their wake;
The blade of memory grows dull,
As does of life the ache.

Neighbors may make brave attempts
To draw blood from a stone,
But only those we hate can place
Halos on lesser foes.
