Unintelligible Susurration


What is Love?


Is love
An object of interest
So intense
It ruptures the heart
To insanity?

Is love
A being who
Slits their own flesh
Conspicuously
In the midsts of midnight?

Tell me
What is this love you so fondly speak of?

Love is untouchable
Love is in the mind
Love is not a person nor thing

Love is...
The beating of one's heart so rapidly
You dare to risk everything
Even take your own life

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
