Love Conquers All

Amor Vincit Omnia (Love Conquers All) by Caravaggio | Public Domain

Love is more powerful than hate
but love occasionally takes a break
it lets hate poison the hearts of men
takes a rain check every now and then

Hate is then amplified, laid bare
it summons its close friend despair
to snuff out all light from the hearts of men
have them become bleak, lifeless and stern
