Love - Poem by Jasmine Hawkins
Desire and romance are its slaves;
Shared by those who are enslaved.
Expressions shown by the prisoners’ raves;
From this imprisonment no one is saved.
Entrapped in its blanket all must obey.
An irrefutable force that initiates constraints,
Submissive actions of affections portray
The dictatorship the language of love in lovers paints.
Love for people, power, romance, and greed.
Behaviors are influenced by love for these things.
There are those who refute and those who heed
But not many can fight the engulfing emotion love brings.
Love is a dictator that manipulates all
Who in its superiority can’t help but fall.
