Dichotomy of Love

What seems so very simple
is not so what it seems;
(To complicate the matter
our lives are full of dreams.)

Enthralling tours of wonder
cause feelings strong to grow;
(Illusions cast long shadows
on paths which lead to woe.)

The world is always lovely
so longs the heart at night;
(Within the dream is shining
though distant is the light.)

Hot passions tend to smolder
for those who hold them dear;
(Longing will always linger
so hearts do slowly tear.)

Murals seen imbued within
in love so strong the zeal;
(Such scenes painted so deeply
dread time will seek to steal.)

Desire’s fruit sweet ripens
love’s nectar to be found;
(But dead to earth it’s falling
and makes no thoughtful sound.)

To taste the fruit of Eros
resolve with joy it flies;
(Cold doubt blunts the purpose
with winter’s breath it dies.)

When two lovers are loving
then souls they can be free;
(Stormy minds tend to becloud
sure paths one once could see.)

Love songs play a melody
sublime heard in a dream;
(Though softly sure it whispers
foreign can seem its theme.)

A trance of love is beauty
and stunning in its hue;
(Always an angst in moments
when taken out of view.)

Places for peaceful knowing
keep true the soul at peace;
(Paths fade in somber travels
so lost souls tend to cease.)

So the quest for loves reward
pursued throughout all time;
(No matter words not knowing
it’s found within the rhyme.)
