The Details of Love

 

It is an agitated rose writhing

In her blood that shadows her cheeks,

And her heart's peregrinations proving

'tis all elusive yet still she seeks

Ardent lips to be that gale of passion from Olympus,

And like the old Greeks,

She pines for a love not shy,

And far from meek.

 

Love's dew settles upon her unkissed brow

Marking shadows on her unloved youth but even now,

The mists of dream glaze her avid eyes,

Her virgin tongue speaking not of wherefores and wise

She is to lose her self in the town

Of forgotten faces finally found

With all the joy of summer sunrise.

 

Not unlike the wilderness of melancholy-

A forlorn tolling of bells, tolling of bells-

Does she smile seductively, soothingly.

A ghost* unmasked as the sign of Hell's

Pilgrimage to her soul, which loved ardently.

 

It is a sin, O! to love's a sin!

For it steals one's morals, like any other sin.

And she has seen: to love his lover,

Love uncovered the Machiavel in him.
