Love

Love. It’s such a beautiful word that resonates in our hearts when uttered. When humanity goes in search of new things, love always becomes their ultimate treasure. Love is so many things at the same time. Love is happiness when your love lasts. Love is sadness when your love perishes. Love is anger when your love is taken for granted. Love is peace when your love is respected and returned. Love is freedom to do things you thought you never could do. Love is a cage that prevents you from doing certain other things. We cry for love, we smile for love. We save for love, we sacrifice for love. Love is not happiness but neither is it sadness. Love is a contradiction of itself. It is everything at once. It is like God. There is nothing that can replace it. Love is everything. Hence, let everything be love.

An emotion of emotions

that unifies all emotions

in a universe of contradictions

is the emotion of love

Like the moon at night,

like the sun at day

With two poles it behaves

shining either way

At beginning rises,

the happiness before crisis

but so does it set

for unhappiness that rises

Yet it remains

as a wonder to all

with death never at call

in the infinite sky

ย of heart after all

Love makes you strong

Love makes you weak

Love makes you smile

Love makes you cry

Like the sun, the moon

the clouds and the stars

it behaves like one

it behaves like all

Oh! Alas!

The contradiction of it all

in hearts so deep and raw

sheltered by a soul too wow

Thus lies in a universe of contradictions

another contradiction

that governs all other –

the curious contradiction of love.
