Love’s Paradox

Good afternoon… It’s my friend Lauren’s Birthday today… I’m wishing her a Happy One.  No matter how old that girl gets, she can’t catch up to me.  Tho’ I can’t really account for the many lives we’ve shared.  I think we run on equal with that one.

Here is the other ‘Love’ poem I sent out for publication..  Feed back appreciated.

LOVE’S PARADOX                                                                                                                                          

Love leaves the taste of metal

Sweet fragments of bitter curse

On the tongue of Death’s linger

Painful in the departure of

How loss ravages the heart


Love calls the writhing Fury’s

To sing with Neil Diamond

In an a’capella harmony of chaos

Dropping Life-Safer candy to

War torn starved children


Love caresses the angel’s longing

For the tinker chimes of Life’s call.

Hallelujah, praise to the everlasting

Symphony of heaven in hell

Dancing with this angel with devilish on


Love speaks in silent thunder

Caresses Love with seething breath.

Burns the way into your soul, full

Of everything and nothingness

Waiting for you to embrace the heat of ice


Love is not one thing or another

It is All in the scald and the freeze

In the void and brilliance of life and death.

Love doesn’t give less to evil for good’s regard

It is the trump of eternity’s gift


Love will not pass by the right or wrong

Of what is seen or unseen in the dense fog’s clear view

Love makes no condemnation in the here and now

Forever Love’s caresses is the steel and the silk

In the fury and the radiance of life’s infinite journey

  1. “To sing with Neil Diamond in an a’capella of harmony and chaos.” I truly wish I’d written that! Nice!
