Matthias Pantaleon (August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)
Love Without Language
If I throw a piece of wood
Into a burning coal,
It will burst into a thicker flame
Proving nature’s right.
If I wink at you;
You smile back,
I’d lost my composure;
And my heart melts within my being
If you felt love by this fellow,
And you nurse same feelings;
We need no language to explain how we feel:
Cause love is a universal language.
But if you decide to discriminate,
And trade my feelings for fishes
No hard feelings;
I will walk taller than miles.
Get lost with tides,
At the end of time;
I will be the knight you'll never forget;
I am your first language!

Poet's Notes about The Poem
Fire recognizes wood when being thrown inside, like minds attracts each other, but men will always fight what is right because of so call mother tongue.
