Sempiternal Love-A Modern Sonnet

Average User Rating
Editor's Rating

 

Who welcomes not, a bounty of ambrosial love,
A much languished for authority, that blesses one,
With an insignia of a pounding heart.
A universal currency that hath the ability to transcend,
All derisory fences and capricious notions.
One that can't be bought, nor exchanged for kind,
Since love hasn't a kindred replacement.
Love can only be boundlessly propagated,
Within the strict confines of an ecumenical law-that defines it to be,
An ingenuous egression, and a transaction between imploring hearts.
"Exude a blazing, indefatigable assurance of infinite love,
Love thy parents, siblings, friends, relatives and the one reckoned,
To be your 'soul mate', and never let any mortal ailments,
To 'full-stop' the sentence of divine, sempiternal LOVE."
