Love, A Tempest

Agony a drug
but no better than a hug
a stab of pain, of ecstasy
The light inside quickly flees

A hug, a sweet embrace
in love will you be encased
a simple gesture
honest and pure
Lasting forever, on into next year
smashing to dust your internal fear

Love the tempest
the cruelest of test
but those who chose to try
despite the want to cry
Will win what their heart and mind does seek
the inheritance of the meek
