Love is

Love is

A Poem by Frontier

Love is the great reversal
There were islands
made out of eyeballs
black and white
screaming stars
The sighs sounded
 like
death in a box
Flatliner,
and those eyes were
Flatliner,
and the touch was
Flatliner,
and those days were
Love is the great reversal
Valleys and cliffs
Nerves and fibers
Palaces and temples
a blushing refuge,
rose colored wings
A recess placed in
the shadow of
your shadow,
missing mass
Inside, we look like the 
night sky,
we're all here
because of something
unspeakable

Love give colors, heals, put extra burden, push some one to despair, extremes lead some one to say adieu form his or her life, still the positive aspect of love is dominant than negative aspects, true love is there but many believe it is a mirage, at time practical mindedness better than peripheral love, very thought provoking and nice poem

Love is the great reversal of oneness, sometimes love is multilayered and fulfilling, other times its a heavy weight, at which time oneness isn't such a bad thing , or something like that

Moving, wonderful work. The rhythmic heartbeat of this poem, the cadence, was deeply felt.
Also, your use of repetition was very effective, reminding this reader again about the power of love's transformation. Good finish too. Left we wondering, about some of different reasons we seek the open skies of love.

I'm glad you stopped by Inda, thanks!
Your ending is very strong in this poem, and so is the refrain "Love is the great reversal." Love transcends our lives in many ways. We teach our hearts to accept varying degrees of love during our lives. I would say that we experience love on many different levels. By the end, hopefully we can explain that unspeakable reason for existing.

I agree with Jacob that there is a dark current in this piece. Your second and third stanzas really establish that idea with some dark imagery. However, I believe that you bring is back to the light with your last two stanzas. While the speaker does not provide the reader with full closure as to why we exist, they bring us a step closer to that point.

Long time Clockwork, its good to see you back. Thanks for this great review! :)
This poem is so captivating, your opening stanza pulled me in and didn't let go. You find ways to deliver such clever truths that I blush on the inside, very well done! I'm so glad I read, it's almost unspeakable as well.

But I had to say SOMETHING :)
