What is Love? (Original poem)

January 11, 2017






Written by @linzo

What is love but a journey to self?

A self crouched in fear of facing the mirror

Scribed in a moving wave of reflective horror

To churn the mind to a higher shelf


Between the silence of a beating heart

Lies the secret chamber of discovery

To a self in a masked recovery

Horning the mastery to an illusionary art


Trips and flips to lay my mind

In a comfortable imaginary pool

A temporary retreat for a feeble fool

Who thinks they can escape the hereditary grind


Despair a haunting daily companion

That leads a heart to love truly cried

In tears of self fulfilling communion

Baptising the bearer in holy waters carried

Please take a look at my book here.
