Living Love Fire

Take a look my Love
do you see how the diamonds of our dreams
are burning so brightly and violently
silhouetting the lips of our wishes against the walls of ancient Latin gold
in the sacred villa of Love's Kingdom where there is no escape
where rescue is unwanted,
where we survive and grow stronger in the gymnasium of passion's glory
did you notice that above the rose vine gateway
the phrase Sancta Simplicitas is carved deeply into the black and white marble,
do you feel the crimson love stress within your throat,
do you taste your soul's intestinal fortitude
surfacing on your spiked tongue
as we wrestle eachother ruthlessly,  like champions that die in defeat,
moral armbars, clean elbow strikes to the jaw of flippancy,
pressure point pinches to the arteries of our inhibitions,
intellectual left and right hooks landing on the cheeks of our wisdom,
poetic hip throws to the mat of hard lust
defiant choke holds of love, flawless in tight execution
penetrating the blood brain barrier with the ecstasy of warrior fervor, 
and as we lay sweatied and spent on the ground of this rough enlightenment
we look at eachother admiringly and realize like young romance
that we live for a single, shared purpose
to teach love what love means,

If they ever say diamonds to diamonds, dust to dust
they'll be speaking in bereavement of our beauty and bravery, of our best,
and I won't allow that,
as I know damn well
that you will not tolerate such misgivings either my Love,
instead,
we shall build a war machine of divine desire
that will destroy the proven walls of conventional psychology
erect a fortress of love that can withstand total despair, 
and they will know the strength of our diamond love
as it guides the lost and lonely
through chaotic oceans of heart hysteria as with us,
no one will ever say our love died,
because we fought for it to live my Love -

Sancta Simplicitas is an ancient Latin phrase meaning...Holy Simplicity...

J.A.B.

Epic, Justin. As all that you write...that larger than life quality breathes through this. The struggle to survive....despite all obstacles. Your poetry makes skeptics believers in this kind of love. Beautifully written.

Our hearts are wrought from the iron ore of warrior pride, and our love be an epic of angelic instinct Eileen. When skeptics become fanatics for that which they resisted the nature of their fire the world sees...you are so beautiful my Beloved Poetess...J.A.B.

There is an ongoing metaphorical struggle that can be felt throughout these powerful lines, Justin. Too many striking phrases to mention....but, a pleasure to read them over and over again. Fighting to keep love strong and alive is a worthy crusade! #7 ~ Congrats on POTD // paul

The song, "Love is a Battlefield" was playing in my head, getting louder and louder until both the song and the poem reached climax. Great job!

The climax of this love is infinite, as the battlefield and beauty of love is immemorial Cindi. Pat Benetar is a woman of fierce love and a great vocal talent. Your climax is my quest...J.A.B.

Your amazement is my ecstasy, your intense pleasure my dreams Poetess...my heart is flexing robustly in your joy tonight! Yes Laura, she and I are leaders in love, enduring unique pain and bliss in our own very special way! My Love and I are the ultimate test for eachother which the sparring metaphor portrays. I knew the physicality, passion and partnership would excite you! Aahhhh, I'm so happy with you...Happy Valentine's Day Laura...Justin

Though I guess I could just make a second comment. I find myself strangely reminded of a quote from Huxley's Brave New World: Happiness is never grand ... When comfort abides all the time, it becomes squalid and drab. As with your poetic love entanglement, it is intensified by each other's struggle to be heard and override ... and then to sit back and learn and listen. The chaos (in this sense) is complementary and helpful. ... sorry if I ramble sometimes, I just like to absorb what I'm reading!

Your thoughts support my search and understanding of truth Timothy, I am honored. That's a great book. Yes, she and I compete for our own hearts, its wild and divine, to keep, yet to combine, its awesome...J.A.B.

Your words really took me places, Justin. Where love are like warriors in a bloody combat, but are somehow made all the better for the struggle. "that we live for a single, share purpose to teach love what love means." ... Wow. Your passion is so genuine that you're teaching IT how it's supposed to be! I'd like to point out phrases that captured me, but the character limit won't allow me ... so I'll settle for these: elbow strikes to the jaws of flippancy ... and rough enlightenment.

Well said Timothy, very well said! Teaching love about love, that's the essence, we've been reborn in our love, and consequently are redefining the possibilities of love. She and I are so independent, so brave, yet we know that together we can be stronger, and happier my friend...J.A.B.

That certainly sounds like a love worth fighting for, Justin. I really like the way you compared fighting for your love as though it's a war, and many times it is. This line, "erect a fortress of love that can withstand total despair," is my favorite.

Your beautiful, and wise sentiments mean much to me Lin. With life and true love come war Lin, sadly, truly, inevitably, its even natural in this savage world, she and I have learned about love in means ways throughout our lives, but together, we have learned to trust, and want love from eachother, its magical Lin...J.A.B.
