love as breath



this cannot be love
i hear them say
this flying of fur
this scratching at flesh.
this cannot be love
don't be absurd
this shouting of names
this war of cruel words
how can this be love?
when love is divine
it is angels in flight
it is valentines night.
how can this be love?
when love is supreme
echoes of moonlight
slivers of sunlight.

but who are they?
what do they know?
of this passion that binds
of this connection like glue.
but who are they?
that sit and judge
bound by convention
chained by rules.
this is true love
like gods true gift
this bruising of tongues
this grinding of teeth.
this is true love
a flight of fate
blessed by conviction
blessed by belief.

this is true love
as true as death
this aching of souls
this blinding of sight
this is true love
as true as breath
this briefest of kisses
this brightest of light.
this is true love
