    My beautiful bar of soap,
    your scent is soft and sweet
    and your shape so charming,
    I think I'll call you Love.

    You cleanse my filthy world,
    making all bright and clean,
    adding a blissful fragrance
    to otherwise dull and weary days.

    But, ah, I must be careful
    not to hold you too tight,
    for if I try to constrain you
    you will surely slip from my grasp.

      The thing about it is that the more you use a bar of soap, the thinner it gets. And there will come a time when holding it would actually result into breaking it in half.

    Well, I guess that could be an effective analogy since there is a certain mortality in true love... especially when you get so close to a person that you get to wash his/her ass.

    The soap may not last but the fact that the soap actually washed you cannot be erased by anything in this world.

    I sort of like the playfulness of this. And for some reason, I felt drawn to that simple yet eccentricly used line... "I think I'll call you Love." There is something richly detached about that line. Something so... official that it appears as though something so stiff has been unnerved.

    It's like something that Remedios the Beauty of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude would say.

    Anyway... keep writing.

    Ciao.

      I don't see how a bar of soap could literally make all 'bright', maybe shiny or scintilliant at best, but not bright. I also think you should add the 'a' between adding blissful and finally my suggestions for your last stanza are:
    "But, ah! I must be careful
    not to hold you too tightly with
    my hands, for if I try to constrain you,
    you will surely slip away. "

    Although you could switch constrain for confine.. or another con- word. and you could also just not follow my suggestions.. I realized midway that they weren't beautifying the poem's general aesthetics.. But, I think you and I both know what the title of this piece should be. And the type, to me, seemed a little satirical/comic because your life has gotten to the point where soap means hope. Ha! That might be a good title 'Soap, means hope' or something of the sort.. Anyhow I am being all too garrulous so!
    Yours truely,
    Outlaw-ed
    P.S: All that you want is to critisize .... it for all it's worth...
