Love Song

Spread the love

Love, time, space, continuum
somehow add up to mean the same,
they’re words that ring inside my heart.
Paint not desire upon these lips,
You’re breath o’ soul, empyrean art.
Like poesy that trickles out mouth of odist,
come adorn o’ sizzle preserved opuscule.
I relish not lily nor savor I rose,
find light most winning of deep-set eyes.
Paint not affection upon these lips,
You’re fire o’ ice, unfeigned harp.
Like paean that soothes wavering throb,
come enlighten o’ apprise tentative step.
Love, time, space, continuum
somehow add up to mean the same,
they’re words that ring inside my heart.

    This is soooo Good/God!
    The painted lip love is part of, but subsumed by the gift of Mystery.

    Luv the “unfeigned harp”

    As a girl guide (some cultures say girl scout) we sang a song which said ‘music alone shall live never to die’

    Yes, love is the word excluded from the time space continuum. I like your mix of words, though I must confess I have to learn more of this style.
