Definition of love



The bitter-sweet memory of your face,

As I gaze into the crystal perfection of your eyes,

Two black diamonds glinting in the moonlight,

While the sun glitters at the corners of your smile…


Drinking from the fountain of your unquestionable wisdom,

Quenching an uncharacteristic thirst for knowledge

That seems to creep up when I gaze into that crystal clear-perfection

Mesmerised into silent awe…


A myth I only just started to believe in

As I, astounded, watch it in full bloom before me

As I, dumbstruck, cower into dark crevices and notches,

Wondering at my own obvious inferiority


The setting of the sun as it signals the end to my oblivion,

The coming of a new term as I ponder the separation it brings

The look on your face when I say that final goodbye

And the passage of time as I long to see you again


The thought of losing you

The thought of no longer being the dominant feature in your beautiful mind

The thought of never again hearing the sound of your heartbeat

When you hold me in the haven of your arms.

The thought of never again hearing the gentle caress of your voice

As you pronounce the simple syllables of my name

The thought of never again seeing that beautiful smile

That sets my heartbeat off on a different wavelength.

Absolute all-consuming Joy…

Seeing you again, a face swathed in quiet bliss,

Like the warm rays of a new dawn erasing my childish fears

As I bask once again in the shimmery glory of first love...

Come what might, may

I am home…
