' I Know What Love Is ' - Poem by Ency Bearis

love was born
long time ago
from the womb
of sanctity

captivating hearts
tantalizing to eyes
magnetic to emotion
unrestrained all the way

roams all over the place
to your soul
to your being
with such demand
like to reach whatever

to the moon and the stars
travel across the ocean
hike the mountains
just for the thrill of it

but the essence of love
is just within
to cherish
the enlightenment
the serene of joy

and to the contrary
the unexplainable pain
the mental anguish
the sacrifices
the craziness

but despite all of this
we submit to the demand
because love
is what it is

    Beautifuly written and you have gone into the depth and width of what love is. It endures no matter what. It is spiritual more than fleeting feeling. (Report)Reply
