Shackles of cynicism have displaced your heart, the love that once transcended time is no more. No wordsmith can bring beauty to an invisible emotion, lost in translation to an ignorant uncultured mind. As you searched for a definition of the tangible, intangible feelings were ignored, even with eyes shut. Funny, how three words cause a chemical imbalance, but the euphoria is short lived when ego takes hold. Promises to comfort, wipe away tears, anguish and pain, come with no guarantee of satisfaction - no refund for regret. Love does not say when the fire is burning to wage war, it provides an opportunity to nourish peace and harmony. Love does not say to be bitter and live with a grudge, it asks for you to forgive, not to antagonise another's soul. In a world lost to materialistic commercialism, the skeptic doubts like a pessimistic detractor. Love is not like money, that must be reciprocated with interest, it is simply an undetectable phenomenon that graces us all. To some a second hand emotion, but the language of love still remains the most powerful feeling known to humanity. One tongue that has no religion, race nor geographical boundary, which only fails to blossom when limits are implanted.

Deep piece. Love can heal and love can wound. That's what is so enigmatic about love. There's nothing as painful as a wounded love...that's for sure.

This sounds of a hurt heart left stranded. Great pain and pleading throughout the lines.

Conditioning love makes it hard for it to grow wings, S-1. Love is supposed to be free, but on the other hand it can be egoistic and create its own terms! Regards // paul

It is the saddest of sad things when cynicism replaces a heart of transcendent love... Silent One, your poem is filled with thoughtful and meaningful contemplation, on the power, grace and universal humanity of love, packaged in the beauty of your poetic lines; 'One tongue that has no religion, race nor geographical boundary' - indeed! Warmest wishes my wonderful friend! ~Susan

Well, there is not chance it would be a man lol.. Thanks Mike.. This is fictional though.. I have no idea my mind set when I wrote it..

Absolutely, everything is "lost in translation" when like minded or different minded souls cannot find a common ground, cannot grasp "the tangible or intangible"! Indeed, Love is everything beautiful, Love is grace.. You have said it all Silent One in your amazing piece of beauty and love! A call to genuine untarnished divine sublime Love! A great pleasure to read, enlightening and healing.. Thank you for sharing. A FAV. Shine and write. Stay blessed.
