Love

Dare you ask

How to describe love

Like asking about the taste of water 

Or the scent of a thousand rose beds 

It can only be experienced 

With all its suffering 

Torment 

It’s end

And zeal

Do not ask me of its meaning 

I only

Want to know more 

Forever 

I have planted you

In every place I’ve gone 

In hopes you blossom 

Be it in another’s earth 

To have held you close 

A memory for lifetimes to come 

Fill up every void 

Defining love and loss 

Birth and death 

Blurring lines in its disobedience 

Lawless in action 

Wanton spirit to explain 

How we did hold the sun and moon 

When our embrace created breath 

I still inhale you 

Envious the rose became 

Interchangeable 

All the same 

Buried you in the air I breathe 

This is how I’ve set you apart 

Forever
