A Synopsis of Love

A SYNOPSIS OF LOVE: Love is not a folklore appreciated only in hindsight Nor a fairytale told only to children under the moonlight Love is real but rare as gem, like diamond and amethyst It is far more valuable than magnetite and cassiterite Yet amazingly ubiquitous like sand and laterite To all of mankind; a holy book reader or atheist To the lucky brethren, love is an Angel Divine Springing forth joy, peace and harmony from within the spine It is the golden gaze of the early morning sun To the unlucky, love is a demon from the depths of Hades Stealing sleep, creating chaos and the denial of fun It is a ghost of darkness from the shadows of the shades Love vanquishes all evil; human or demonic It reconciles all enemies; foreign or domestic Upholding the edicts of Emperor Constantine Amplifying the idea and sacrifice of St Valentine It is the only stimulant, consumed not in clandestine That can purge the cholera of war out of humanity's intestine Some of us may have loved, lost and seen trauma And during our period of perplexity and dozens of drama We may have cursed and wished to bath with molten magma But love heals, it forgives and overpowers the concept of Karma True love is so beautiful that it creates a sweet panorama I pray it finds you, for it soothes and pampers like spa and sauna Jideofor.Obidike as ‘The Plantagenet’
