Love

 
who knows,
what is there in the heart 
a fence of mutual benefits 
or a carton full of paradoxes
or a reservoir of love,
Conditioned not,
to the vagaries of this or that 
who knows,
whether the glittering necklace,
is of gold 
or gold plated!
only to shine for the day 
the flying feather,
does not know 
where it will land!
the blizzard selfishness,
can break the window panes
of hearts! 
only to gift a recession,
that hurts..
the pamphlets in the air,
the roses in the campaign,
must not go in vain
for 
in 'falling in love',
a fall of the self for other,
is a must 
for love is the way you are!

    Beautiful poem! I especially love the ending…how love is about selflessness, or giving the self away. If anything, true love will always leave us completely altered, hopefully for the best. But that is God’s will!

    A lovely poem about the way love can transform a person’s life. Love makes a person so much less self-centred and critical of the short-comings of others. Love often brings us a way of looking at the world – not just the object of that love – in a more accepting way, and helps us to enjoy the wonders of just being alive. I think there are several songs about love being everything and of course the old Beatles song, ‘All we need is love’. 🙂
