Kaleidoscopic Infatuation: A Poem About Falling In Love
There was a song entitled "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing" back in the 1950s. One line in the song says, "Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living." Many people live because of love. Many died for it, some for the lack of it. There is nothing more essential in this world than love. There is a love that is eternal. There is also the temporal. Temporal love is called infatuation. And this poem is all about it.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Is it my face you always remember?
Is it me you always think about?
Do I rule your brain asunder?
Do my mem'ries melt your doubt?
Always your stares feel strangely close;
Reaching forth through coreless cores.
Gates of skies, thorns of the rose
Ode to lasting prose.
Nights of dark sleepless turning
Igniting memories anew.
Cold winds silently sighing,
Set tearless faces ablue.
How could I dare to blank over you
Once your eyes come to meet mine?
Can't even stop the twisted heartbeat;
Kaleidoscopes of love entwine.
It’s your face I always remember.
It’s you I always think about.
You rule my brain asunder.
Your mem’ries melt my doubt.
