Love's Philosophical Potion - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

Love is over rated
never understood
but always believed in

slide down a rainbow
then

take equal measures of
wanting and desires
faith in an idol or dreams

add kindness or bitterness
jealousy or patience
a smile or a frown

a pinch of bittersweet
sadness and memories

stir in tenderness
then dance on the clouds
mix all in a chalice

then add a heart
to the potion
Is Love real?

or just an illusion
only your heart knows
what it wants

Do you?
