power of love

Standard

for love
we would
a world
burn
and much
more
and
blame
fate
for the
intensity
of the flame
that did
tear us from
the grip
of frailer
illusions

for the call
of the heart
is made
of stuff that
confounds
reason
so potent
that with
but a single
glance
it can
sedate
reason
and in the
same instant
give meaning
to madness

yes, with but
a single glance
it can your
world redraw
to bring
sweetness
of ambrosia
to lips
and with
selfishness
inflict such
mortal pain
that could
a future
cripple
with tears
of longing
