Ode to Love: a Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017

"Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words"---and yet Unable to Define Love.
"Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words"---and yet Unable to Define Love.

Love...

Is its magic potion mixed in heavenly heights,

or in volcanic crater of groin so happily insane?

Too sweet not to hurt from those very first sights

with each orgasmic face expressing joy and pain.


Love...

That colorful glow emanating out of soul,

illuminating whole world with its fireworks and craze,

that feeling so able to blind and to cajole

making us surrender to its endless maze.


Love...

A sweet poison to mind and its every sound reason

hidden secret of wars, of ambitions, and fame,

sometimes inspiration for pretense and even treason,

well, who needs hate, if love can ignite the same.


Love...

Source of every beauty, sonnet, and ballet finesse

it's been a cause of being born, and a cause of a wish to die,

every poet's enigma so hard to express,

spurring us to laugh, and more often to cry.


Love...

All moonlights, and roses, and wine combined

can't spell the true name of that emotion

it's beyond any word, any thought, any mind

just familiar to those who have known that devotion.


Love...

A true measure of life without which we are slowly dying

but instantly resurrected at that first certain glance,

just one promising smile that leaves us sighing

like a raindrop on a desert soil in its joyful dance.


Love, and nothing but...

      Val my friend, you are very generous and kind in your response. Thank you so much . Reaction to your poem happened so naturally .

      A poet can't but react on LOVE in prose. Poetry has been lost in Paradise, LOVE is giving us poetry back.

      This reminds me of another saying - It's a thin line between love and hate. You can love with deep passion but also hate with the same intensity. Beautiful poem.

      Your masterly writing have touched many aspect of the most powerful force of the universe , LOVE.

      It is real, when genuine.

      For most of those who upgraded faith by knowing, "

      "... God is Love.

      Those who live in God's love live in God

      and God lives in them. "

      Would anyone not like this poem?!

      John---I appreciate your kind comment, my friend. I don't know how much longer I will have this inspiration to write poems, but it's fun and a challenge to compose---even more so because English is my second language.

      Namely, I still have to firstly get it in my mind in my native Croatian, and then think of a poetic translation that would be in the spirit of English.

      Anyhow, thank you for your nice comment, it's very encouraging.
