LOVE CHOOSETH NOT

Written by: Eric Otieno Rixpoet

Who chooses when to fall in love
The ocean waves sweep even doves
Carrying all gates
To the roof of the sky above

Who chooses when to fall for affection
Love chooseth not
Do true feelings ever define boundaries
Or winds opt not to sweep over weak peripheries

Who ever stood in the path of twirling passions
They leave victims in twinges and twitches
Sweet swirling stitches
Love chooseth not
On whose shores it beaches

Love is an unforgiving prison
Can’t escape when you guilt
’twill be like running for the horizon
Forever will find you still at it

Love chooseth not…
