Master Love - Poem by Arnee Akpan

Many have used you to play with
Like you don't have your wits
You seem small and little
But yet, you can conquer the whole world in a blink
You act as a shield and sword to warriors
And as a glue to two species
Oh Love! Oh Love! !
Men have deceived me with thy name
But I know that you never did mean for any of it to happen

Your great name,
So easy in the lips of men
But difficult to find in their hearts
Many have been hurt in your name,
Some say you work with destiny when bringing joy and happiness
The lucky ones call it 'True Love'
But I wonder if it exists
Oh Love!
When will you come to my house and knock on my tearful heart turning it into a joyful one
Oh Love!

    Lovely depiction of the mighty feeling of love, well articulated and insightfully penned with conviction. Love is spiritual experience and voyage of pure bliss, that is also whimsical and temperamental, appearing unannounced and may leave without warning, if not carefully nurtured at all times by both couples to maintain its bliss. Thanks for sharing Anny. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
