In the dawn of her desire, she knew it all
From books that had told of love and loss
Words fragrant with intimacy and ecstasy
To Lessons learnt and shared by broken hearts
And the euphoria of soulmates discovered!
She took notes
Learnt by heart, matters of the heart
Taming lust with reason
And hope with reservation!
All he knew of love he hated
A procession of brokenhearted friends
A mother who only stayed because she could not leave
And many who settled for convenience over heart’s desire
He took notes
Ingesting the memories of pain
Coining Love, ‘a foolish construct’
And embracing desire without attachment!
Years of precautions and but moments is all it took for her to love him
A lifetime of experience and at first glance he knew she was different
His kiss washed all reason away
Her lips clasped on with committed resolve
The things he said sank so deep; a tale that would take a lifetime to tell
The melody of her voice soothed each crease; all his worry and pain forgotten
As desire fanned the embers of passion
They tossed their notes into Love’s scorching flames
For deep down they now knew, that love was beyond understanding
And that control over it, had always been an illusion
Symbolically I didn’t use any colour in this post, because we each have different shades of love.
If you’d like, after reading this, you can call to mind the color combo(just 2) that you associate with love or a lover, and fill it in secretly or share it here. I’d say mine is pink+black.
Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
