Love is a two-faced witch!
In love: never so happy, never so vulnerable – reverted to normal layout
Love is a two-faced witch,
Nature’s rashly designed affliction;
becomes an irresistable force,
intensified by glance, gesture, touch,
aspires to reckless compulsion,
heeds not the warnings from scars,
overrules appeals by powerless sense,
deftly achieves the primeval aim,
genetic fusion, mighty and supreme,
ecstatic beyond apprehension!
But, O Nature, when love declines,
plans from Eden so incomplete,
wretched heart knows no direction,
suffering in the wake of recall,
abandoned to despair and yearning,
helped not by distraction and instinct,
Nature, indifferent to its desertion,
moved not by desolation and pain,
suffered readily in its service;
sacrifice repeated, but loathed to bear,
new affliction only to relieve.
