My Love Potion

Why did you come to see me?
Asked the witch,
In a nasal tone!
Are you yourself not made of magic?

I looked at her in silence,
Wondering if she could feel the pain
Dancing all over me
Running through my bloodstream
Pulsating in my heart beats
Laughing at my own gullibility!

I am made of magic
Said I
But my magic is meant not
To be used to seduce!

Go away, she seethed
I have no time to waste
Over cursed beings like you!

I have spells to cast
And lives to wreck
Go away!

I slipped out of her den
Allowed myself to bask in the sunshine
Letting the summer breeze play with my hair
While swallowing my gulps
And smiling at friends
As I walked along the way!

I reached my home,
A mere little cave
Hidden near a humongous waterfall
And I stealthily got in
Making sure that no one saw me
As I want it never to have
Humans aware of where I dwell!

I put my stove over the fireplace
And made some tea for myself
What would be the ingredients of a love potion?
Asked I to the numbing silence!

Love's mind is veiled by the forces of life's illusions
He fell, out of good intentions surely
But he under estimated the evil powers
Lurking in this world!

Why, time runs fast
The clock is ticking
And Fate watches on grimly!

If we fail it now, in this one life,
We shall have to call it quits
Forever!

I decided to take a knife and to chop off my ego
I then took a jug of dew droplets
And I watered my purity
I then took some flowers
And rubbed their fragrance all over my body
I added some insight to my soul
And filled my heart with compassion,
Understanding, forgiveness, acceptance,
Tolerance, warmth, sincerity, humility
And devotion!

To top on to all of this
I chose to fill my stomach
With the fruits of moral principles
And with emotional outbursts!

I packed all of these in myself
And whispered magic words, kept secret
By those witches of good actions
Meant to be used solely for positive purposes!

Then, I walked out of my den
Towards there where Love was
And touched his heart with my little finger!

I saw his eyes shedding off his broods
And felt myself melting!
I saw his swords being thrown off
And felt myself flooding!
I responded to his outstretched arms
And shared
With him
A kiss,
So passionate
That its shine
Reflected there where the Gods reside,
And they,
Could only lower their eyes
And smile
In approval!

Why, my love potion
Worked,
In the very end!
