The Lord Of All Illusions

Rating: 3.7
The love that fate, in humor,
May grant a younger heart.
Will keep it pure and wholesome,
Though It's been torn apart.

As lost loves still engender
A pain at every turn.
A short term loss of memory
Is but their least concern.

But pleasure, ever present,
As all young lovers know;
When vested in such virgins,
Maintains an afterglow.

And built on firm illusions,
Young lovers, may, in vain;
Find mercy in believing,
Their love may live again.

So easily rekindled,
It only takes a spark.
Ignited by a kind word,
Into a flaming arc.

I caution every lover,
Don't be deceived by this.
It's only an illusion,
And one you should dismiss.

The myth words, here, are written.
A wisdom, best ignored.
The lord of all illusions,
'Lost love, can be restored '.
GREENWOLFE 1962

I think its important that we know what we have been blessed with, the lord works in mysterious ways, what is given so freely can and will be taken away.

I know some people who have fallen for this illusion. Well done as it inspires me to wake them up.

A poem that should be higher then it's voting rate. This is a great poem that deserves at least near a 10. It says so much and gives advice aswell. It flows through the readers mind after they have read it and it stays in one's heart. Least mine anyway. I love it. Kat, =)
