PROMPT — What is Love?
I am amazed in your beauty
it is the touch stone to forget
the predicament in the well of life
in which I have fallen unwillingly.
Your soft face, long dense black hair
attract me with a great force
that I cannot overcome
and get lost in it.
When deprivation makes face
with ugly laughter at me
I dip in you unknowingly
to get solace from pain.
When the ruler of creation
does everything wrong
as it has no heart but a rotten head
I get relief in you a great deal.
When my poems get no reader
when editors discard my efforts
months after months no acceptance
I again find in you a great friend.
There are all ill eyes
that see only wrong
and carnal connection
I enjoy your nectar.
