Macro Love


Love is a macro-emotion
For she plods elephant footsteps
On the heart's mushy soil
Leading you down the path of destiny
She stands tall in fields of emotion
Like a giant sequoia
Indomitable yet vulnerable in a paradox of size
She prospers from the depths
Of a gigantesque vault
A shrine seeping of desire
Love is symbolized by a kiss
On a ship called the Titanic
That sank in the boundless Atlantic
Love prospers even on Sesame Street
In an innocent kiss between
Big Bird and Snuffleupagus
Love when reciprocated can move mountains
Even dwarfing the might of Everest
Love knows no boundaries
Leaves no place for feudalism
For the Monatgues and Capulets
She lives on a pedestal, on starry nights, on lofty balconies
She is the sun that fades the gloom within
Yet like all macro edifices
She is flirting with chutes of extinction
Black holes that suckle the vitality of her life
As she surrenders to rampant winds of change
Gazing at the horizon
And wondering
If it will be her last........
