The Love Song

This_is_not_a_love_song_by_MoonHuntress***

Dialogue Poem Set 3.13: On Love Earth n Parka Coat

Earth N Parka Coat rapped a Love Song:


***

 
They sing a love song
But that’s not love,
They play a love tune
But that’s not love.
We wanna be free!
I used to be a sucker for this ‘love thang’
Believin it real, ‘true lovin’ –
That’s what we’re after, they’d say,
That ‘s what’s about, they’d say:
“Love makes the world go round,”
But it don’t.
We wanna be free! Continue reading

Love Divine

Dialogue Poem Set 3.12: On Love

***White Thawb

Love Divine

***

(Now, White Thawb, gentle en-listening,

Patted Ashen in warm, ease smiling,

And to Robe Turquoise nodding much grace.

Then referenced for us a Love Book for consideration,

Surmising its opening with warm embrace,

Admitting his own lack of eloquence,

Prayed we might be swayed by its sense

In rhythmic answers to soul-searching,

Inviting us to verses from Al Qur’an’s nourish-citations.)

 

White Thawb spoke: Continue reading

An Apology and Warning

Dear friend, I apologise

If that is how you feel.

You must not be affected so.

My words fail me.

Perhaps silence is best. Or worst.

I did not intend to offend.

Please note that I too did

Traverse the known world aforetime, Continue reading

Ashen Cloak continued:

Time to come down from the stars,

The celestial seas that span the two temples,

To stop reflecting upon beauty and enchantments

And instead, to face one’s ugly reality and learn;

Time to deaden this heavy heart

That once used to sing and mystify, pulsing,

Swooning into a thousand symphonies.

It could rage the oceans into war,

And stir the dawn to wake. Continue reading

Ashen Cloak replied:

A Refrain: To Complain

***

My god,

This makes things worse!

To think how in solitude

I have wondered high and low to try,

To try and seek her out.

And yet you here, so smug,

Relate your heart’s songs

And refuse to hear mine!

Refuse to hear mine! Continue reading

Robe Turquoise continued:

(To my spouse – for spouses everywhere)

In Heaven, in Time Long Forgot

In heaven, in time long forgot

Was a soul that longed for bliss.

Like a new babe born, crying above –

For you dear Allah.

The eternity of Love, Peace and the Joy of Total Existence.

How it was split in twain1 Continue reading
