Love Mocks - Poem by Della Perry
Laughs heartily in your face
Hilariously frolics upon the lawn
Dancing dirtily, taunting foolishly
Alas, foolish never was in the vocabulary
Love is never where it appears to be
It is never forced, pushed into your face
Shoved under your nose
It doesn't need to be, not true love.
Flashing fluorescent lights!
Open your eyes, love
Lust can lure you into its abyss
The terrible place from which ghosts of hearts crack broken and limp.
True adoration is subtle in its approach
It has no price tag
Names in sands are washed away easily in time
It reveals itself in short, sharp bursts of respect
Kindness, warm tingling
Happiness and trust
A touch of a hand,
A wink of an eye,
A kiss on a nose.
