Love's Magic


Time to put to test
Time for the ink in you
To flow past the gates...those
of Heavens and those of Hells
Around all the stars so there will
be plenty of ink to go around

It flows direct from your veins
Deep from within
From the pumps of sin
Dementia from past the stars
last gasp before super nova

But love...evol backwards
for evolution of constant change
will not be bound to rings or chains
for what is boundless must not stain
for what is magic cannot be hidden by hand

    Oh what a lovely piece. I especially enjoyed the second verse, but the entire poem is beautiful and inspiring. I love the visual of ink running through veins and also the line for what is boundless must not stain.
    Love seems almost a mix of magic and science as you depict it. Beautifully done. (Report) Reply

    I like the concept of all that inky sin pumping out of our veins and spilling around the stars- diabolically imaginative! (Report) Reply

    a free poem that talks about the free love that can't be held tight in the name of ring and chain...the concept is very controversial to me..but people who are in this position can be motivated to start a new life in the name of love! Nice poem! (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
