For the cause of love

Love seems to take our meaning
To be a mere vision
A vision of madness
A moment of delirium
Experienced maybe,
After a fall in the pond of life's

Love remains obtuse to our cause
Caring not that the Gods have spoken
Wanting merely to see us love each other
Here, in this useless world
Before being allowed back there!

This cause I do consecrate
After all, it remains the essence of
My soulful awakening,
The main reason why I have come
To accept the way life runs here
In a seemingly nonsensical

Why, for its cause,
I do accept to remain an indigent poet
One living in a garden of flowers
Being herself, the most delicate of them all,
The most fragrant,
The dreamiest,
The most eccentric,
The one to live with her head in the clouds
While she walks on the tortuous paths of life!

Pray, I wonder then, who is the most
Egregious of us both?
Is it me, with my mystical visions
Or is it he, with his negativity?

I hope the skies let go of their superiority
Over us both,
I hope they do mediate the situation
To suit their will!

Someday, when the heavens will appear
In front of us,
I shall have to refuse their comfort
If we failed to prove to ourselves
That we can love each other
Here, in a fallen world,
We hold no future at all
In eternity!
