Love is Brain-Dead

Love is Brain-Dead

A Poem by Voice
"

By 'love', it means 'the feeling of love', not 'a person who is loved'.

"
When love is brain dead
And you take the body's head
In your lap, placing it near
To your heart, with a tear
In your eye.
You know deep inside
The bird has left the cage.
There's no one on the stage
To dance the lovers' dance.
But oh! You're still in trance.
Decieved by the lub dub of heart beating,
And the sounds of smooth breathing,
You cannot admit that it is dead-
The soul-less body on the bed.

Now as they rise to unplug the support
You start to shiver and become all cold.
Maybe it lives! Maybe it is alive!
Maybe it is just trying to skive!
All these thoughts are running through your head,
As those men are approaching the bed.

They cut the life support and body goes still.
Coursing through your spine is a dreadful chill.
You stare at the bed with your face all blue.
The corpse of love is lying in front of you.

Yeah Nothing more dreadful

Thank you so much for reviewing this :)
Really enjoyed this poem, you have so much to offer in poetry and this piece here is the proof of it. There's one suggestion I'd like to make, don't add such description which restricts readers. Let it float freely.
Thanks for sharing this :)
