Power of Love

a thousand hellos full of hope
often lead to as many hell no
we ignore the fact hearts can be burnt to ashes
when simple turns into complicated
once in a while a jaded heart escapes the dark
and its scars are soothed by the sweetest of balm
if Love is a fool’s errand,
I am a proud jester
in search of grand gestures,
juggling emotions to the sound of the court’s laughter—
you wouldn’t think hearts made of gold
could be so easily broken—c’est l’ironie de la chose
metaphorical precious metal
both fragile and eternally hopeful
Love is worth the poisoned hours
Love is unequalled in its power
