The case of Love

In the case of life Love turns from plaintiff to defendant
Justice the judge, is impartial throughout the hearing
Love left to plea for it’s mere existence
Justice in the process of rearing the ugly verdict
You called upon Wisdom, says Justice
Which you considered to be your greatest ally
However Wisdom proved to be your downfall
Because Wisdom does not reside with you
In fact Folly is your greatest ally
You , Love, Called upon compassion
Compassion could not offer you solace
You had received all Compassion could give
You gave it away at every chance
Love, you then blamed betrayal for your failings
Betrayal proved that also it was never in your way
Moreover it was working in your interest at every turn
Only hiding it’s motives to protect your constituents 
Justice says, I must say you are the greatest charity worker
You work in the interest of no one and in the interest of everyone
Your logic is error and your error is logic
A true contradiction of yourself
You live on a path between Triumph and Tragedy
Taking either route as you go through Time
You say Happiness is your goal
You say that Hope will lead you there
Have in Time, Hope can prove true or false
Then you claim you then are the goal in yourself
But you have already proved to be a contradiction
What then can be said about you Love
I say you make the greatest case, with the least evidence
There is your virtue and your vice

    Dear Wayland, I love that I took my time and read nearly all your poems ((YET)) logic is error, and error is logic.. I got a bad case of love... sometimes I feel the justice will never heal or feel real... why was i searching for the wrong vice~ .. glad to meet you and add you on to my favorite poet list... reading you to night was all worth my while... xox~ LINDA

    Well you said three very flattering things. I am a hopeless romantic, logic in the case of human relations is always error because we're not Vulcan, star trek, but I'm sure you got that. Thank you so much for this very wonderful comment.

    Can I comment on my own poem? Haha, I guess I can. This poem is an allegory. That is the form not part of the title. It could end up being something longer like death knocks, but in the mode of say the trial and death of Socrates by Plato, Where socrates uses the method of elenchus, a greek word just meaning question and answer. That's where the inspiration is from, of course this is the short version and may be the only version. Thanks everyone for reading.

    Complex write, with many facets, will have to read a few times to digest. I have put it in my fav basket to look again.
