The Multifarious Facets Of Love

Love is a dream that begins

Love is a chimera that begins

It’s a ballerina who dances

It’s a poet who thinks

It's a bird that sings

It's the freshness of mints

It's the lie of the ancestors

It's the gossip thing

That's all we see

That's all we hear

It's the old man who lies bitterly

It's the shadow we stumble upon

It's the pretty or the ugly woman

It’s the existence of the soul

It's our sad imagination

It's our painful inspiration

It's the farewell of lovers

It’s the escape of a charming being

It's the death of emotions

It's the end of the passions

Love is a dream that never ends

Love is a nightmare that never ends

We don't know what else to say

While crossing or crisscrossing the ages

And by stepping or jumping over the clouds.
