ODE TO THE GREATESt JOY..OR IS IT?

The Greatest Joy in The World
Sweet & Serene not wild
Makes one’s heart Melt
Never Sour Never Mild
True Love through fire Purified

LOVE, a term so mercilessly abused
Often falsely accused
Of dark cruel killings
Fuelled by self-deceit & Misplaced feelings

Understand your inner being
Find in you that crucial leading
Unraveling the mysteries of your emotions
Perceptive to complexities as deep as oceans

Simplicity & Realism
Rid your soul of all pessimism
Drink from the fount of all life’s beauty
For love is life & not a loathed duty

LOVE an elusive dream to many
Who seek it through dollars & pennies
Lured by bras & panties
Heart & Soul left pining & yearning

Seek love for love through love
It is a priceless gift from above
A wellspring of Joy & Happiness
Springing forth to fill all emptiness

Blissful it is to find that soulmate
Whatever your definition; blessing or fate
One who unlocks in you the desire to live
Of yourself to freely give
To her every want & need
Her every wish to meet
Her beauty so sublime
Making the heart chime

My heart loves her because I need her
My soul needs her because I love her
Unworthy am I of her pure love given so selflessly
Yet she loves my imperfections perfectly

The Greatest Joy in The World
Sweet & Serene not wild
Makes one’s heart Melt
Never Sour Never Mild
True Love through fire Purified

Corny as this may sound it is true
But then what does one do
When reality conflicts with the ideal
The ecstasy of fantasies now so bleak
Survive..Live..Survive…through God’s true love
