Power Of Love


What is the power
of love I can’t have
I feel it under my skin

Now I’m making a promise
I may not keep, be warned
This love I can’t have
This love I don’t believe in

What is the power
of things I desire
Temptation is reeling me in

He comes, stands beside me
I don’t dare to hope
for what I hold close to my heart

What is the power
of just you and me
Nothing compared to the world

But I’m aching inside for
this one recollection
of a time that came before

What is the power
of love I can’t have
I feel it under my skin

So many promises, down under
the earth full of hatred
But think…how so many are kept

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
