Love to show
Love to blow
Love in breath
Love you know

Love like Miss Browning
It is yearning and craving
Yielding and mourning
But Elizabeth says it is the ways of loving

Love beyond and limitless
Love countless and pointless
Love thy heart and all that matters
Love over the skies in one’s eyes

Love do I know
Butterflies and cramps
Love be filled of dreams
Love is the realm of chess

Love full of death
Love nevertheless
Despite its cruelties and mess
Love, love I know
