Love’s Throne

Trapped in arms too strong

Wrapped in love’s embrace

Tangled limbs entwined

Passion in each face

 

Dance to beating hearts

Thrum to music’s beat

Quiver to the rhythm

Please, oh please, entreat

 

Answers in each body

Found in all the questions

Mind’s magic conjures words

No others dare to mention        

 

Defined in soul’s desire

Pleas for needs to quench

Unimagined blissfulness,

Two so; none can wrench

 

Two lovers when they find

A soul to call their own

Combined, as one, in unity.

Love reposes on such throne.

Unransomed Love

Measured love holds naught for me

If counting has a cost.

Love should enfold to make you free,

No liberty is lost.

 

Who conspires to calculate?

Love exists for its own sake.

Believe it now, ‘ere too late.

Shake off illusions. Come, awake!

 

Nor tokens, mindful, though they are,

Impress the truest heart.

Eyes look up to purest star

And so, sweet love, to me impart

All that is your heart’s desire,

Unransomed love, consumed by fire.
