Kevin Hollingsworth has written poetry to touch the heart of those in love - or those who wish to be in love. In "Romance With A Touch of Love", the author seeks to share his feelings on the essence of being human and the variable feelings surrounding attempts to love, to be loved and to lose love. The author writes of how we all romanticize our loves such that they become royalty or superhuman beings. He writes of how even when love is lost, the human spirit wants to try again for that special feelings that make us all appreciated and "special" to others. One of the most poignant verses is about death and marriage. In this writing, the author talks about how the death of a spouse or lover nearly always has the effect of taking one by surprise and how, little by little, the effect can be overlooked when the solitude and silence set in. He tells of the fears of idleness and unhappiness that beset those who have loved and lost.

The author does a marvelous job of baring his soul so that others may feel the joy and the pain of investing in love. Mr. Hollingsworth believes that hatred has no place in a loving relationship and that love always gives the promise of acceptance and delight. The verses are lyrical and they speak to the human conditions of hope, investment and despair which always promises the hope of new love.
