Read Poem: What Is Love?, by Lee Sonogan

“Love is the power of a wise man. It is a net for a lover. It is a tool for a clever man. Love is a song for a singer.” ― Debasish Mridha

Defining love is a complex purpose,
Everyone desires a yearning for this assumed human emotion,
Sometimes ego is misinterpreted as a certain,
Outside a beating heart engaged in slow-motion.
Attachments to sentimental feelings,
Admiring the passion from within,
Wanting empathic exchange in spiritual dealings,
You should grow a soul that exists outside the skin.

Nature vs Nurture,
Bonding beyond the expected romance,
The devotion between two people is a merger,
Knowing an individual’s spirit is the true climax.
Selfless love is unconditional,
An essence intertwined with the cosmos,
Identify harmony in what is critical,
Far from the imagery, deep inside what is close.

Relishing alone can be achieved,
Conjunctions are extra pieces of the cake,
Seeing requires mixed senses perceived,
Meaning more profound wisdom than just heartbreak.
My clarity on love is still undecided,
Positive forces established conflict if you attempt to articulate them,
Regardless, allow those options in and be divinity guided,
Precision of a cut diamond can be split as a hidden gem.

“Love is a more powerful force than magic. You can trick the mind and even the heart, but never the soul. When a person is not free to love with their soul, that is not love and that is why a love spell can never truly work.” ― Nikki Jefford Entangled
