Temple of Serpents


Love is a divine glow,
It transforms you from
Torn cloth to a wick;

But you burn up the house
Using the wick rather
Making light for you;

The glow is meant for refining,
And the uncultivated man;
But you are jumping into the fire.
And destroying yourself

It merges the male and female
And creates light out of the energy,
But you create disasters in the glow,

The moon absorbs sun and looks bright,
You failed to absorb fire,
And missing glory of soft light;
But you remain as a desert
And energy becomes waste,
And make your wound
In the septic state;

The lust exposes your animal attributes
The love reflects your divine power
The lust pushes your kingdom down
The love takes you up and above the stars
The lust is a destroyer and loss making
The love is a donor and brings rewards
The lust licks blood from booms
The love makes the scars to secrete milk
The lust induce corrosion in the non- reactive gold
The love converts the iron ore into gold
The lust makes you dirt
The love makes you pure
The lust is a temple of serpents
The love is a sanctum of gods
The lust is a death
The love is prosperity
And why, you keep prosperity away?
And why, you search for death?

    Yes, I agree-love and lust are opposites-One is effulgent-'
    the other is adestroyer

    A very fine poem with rancid and(blunt) expressions for those to whom
    it is intendid
