One Perfect Vagary — Love

Spread the love

It doesn’t have to be a ballad;
this highway of connected thoughts that burns its way
into the heart,
nor an eternity of collating the moon and stars
when in company of the other—
a pinch of salt in an otherwise bland diet,
stay a little longer
you never know who you might save—
it possesses dominion over man’s attempt to establish
sense.
Unspoken letters that write themselves on lips,
it’s a contradiction of sorts– at times relief, at times
indescribable ache,
and though
I am learning its deep, dark, almost decadent convention;
I can’t help but feel I have belonged to you since
the beginning of time;
a thousand realities rolled into one perfect vagary— love.

  6. A beautiful circular poem, Sanaa, starting and ending with ‘one perfect vagary — love’, encompassing romance and passion. I love the phrases ‘highway of connected thoughts that burns its way into the heart’ and ‘Unspoken letters that write themselves on lips’.

    To love and be loved, we have such a desire for it but cannot really explain it and how beautiful it can be. To use your words “I can’t help but feel” you know it well too Sanaa.

    The act of giving and saving…very appealing concept… a pinch of salt to spice up the bland diet…Thank you for your beautiful poem so eloquently expressed about love.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Cressida 🙂 so good to see you 💄❤️

  12. This one made me sigh (and smile) deeply, Sanaa. The line about “never know[ing] who [we] might save” is a perfect dance between advice and promise, for the one being saved might the one doing the saving (and that is always awesome). The closing is masterful, too, the way it rolls the whole poem together and makes it a tight package.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Magaly 😀 so glad you enjoyed it 💄❤️

  13. Relief and ache are so close together when it comes to love.
