POWER OF YOUR LOVE

			POWER OF YOUR LOVE

HATE NOT AND FEAR NOT 
THE POWER OF LOVE!
LET MY SOUL SOAR THRU THY SOUL
FLOAT LIKE A DOVE
INTO THY FAITHFUL SPIRIT!

MY EYES ARE CLOSED!
MY EARS ARE BLOCKED!
MY LIPS ARE SEALED!
ALL I FEEL IS  NO PAIN!
ALL I CLASP IS LOVERAIN!
ALL I SEE IS NOT FAKE!

GENUINELY AND ELOQUENTLY DEPICTED.
THOUGH NOT YET REAL,
ROLLING DOWN MY SPINE LIKE A REEL.
`TIS REAL LOVE I FEEL

HATE NOT AND FEAR NOT 
THE POWER OF LOVE
IT TAKES MY CONSCIENCE INTO THE UNKNOWN
BEYOND LIMITATION AND INTO THE MISTRY

THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE
BREEDS NO MERCY
IMMENSING MY HEART IN ACIDS OF HUMAN AFFECTION
SOAKING MY TAINTED EMOTIONS, 
TWISTING AND HANGING THEM TO DRY ON LOVE-BREEZE VENTILATION

POWER OF YOUR LOVE
KINDLE A SPARK IN MY PARK
IGNITES MY DEFLATED MOJO
A BURNING SENSATION ABLAZING VIA MY LUNGS TO MY HEART

AN INFERNO SO INEXTINGUISHABLE.
A YEARN SO INSATIABLE.
THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE,
HAILS AND HAUL MY SOUL THROUGH THORNS,
SPIKED TO TORTURE AND TORMENT MY WEAK AND MEEK HEART.


I FOR ONE BEAR NO FORTITUDE 
TO FORBEAR THIS HUMAN EMOTION,
THAT HAS NO ROOM FOR PATIENCE.
AND I SURRENDER MY LOVE TO YOU.

TAKE ME FOR I CANNOT ENDURE ANY MORE!
