Encompassing an enterprise we don't understand but philosophical attempts follow us aroundMature

Love
is like art
art
can be defined
as a single-minded attempt
to render
a higher justice
to the visible universe
bringing light
the truth
It finds
its form
its colors
its light
its shadows
An artist
makes their appeal
to the hazardous enterprise
of living
they speak
to our desire of peace
our desire of unrest
this
is why love
is like art.
In an artist
there is a soul
encompassing
their being
a drive
shooting
for the moon
a passion
that rivals
ours
in a movie scene
under the sheets
a fire
that can't
be put out.
Love
is like art
unbridled
nonsensical,
on occasion,
and yet
it fills our lungs
to the brim-
with sweetness
and lust
a raging
desire
we can't control
except to spill it
across our skin
like paint
on a canvas
If any truth
dwells in the belief
confessed above-
then
there is not a place
of splendor
or a dark corner
of the earth
that does not
preserve.

The End
