The Silken Thread

The heart never quite knows when it will find love
We chose not where it flies, It leaps taking us where it will
It says this is where I belong, and we are helpless
Utterly helpless to resist when it is true and deep
It’s like a flame, an everlasting eternal flame
That ignites the soul and defies all rational reason
Common sense is for those who are in control
Love knows no control, it takes and devours and demands
There is no exit and certainly there is no escape clause
There are no cages or chains, but it owns your very soul
It owns every waking hour, your dreams and even more
It causes bliss, despair, turmoil, great desire and utter trust
It is all encompassing, and yet it rules with a silken thread
Nothing can destroy it, all angry words so quickly overlooked
Everything is forgiven if we truly love, for it reigns supreme
Not many experience this overwhelming giving of the heart
But it is worth the price for once given you are never alone
Two become one, and together sometimes creative even more.
