This week on ZODML Poetry Corner, Madamidola Oladele shares a poem on the many faces of love.
Has your heart ever been broken?
Has your love ever been mistaken?
The book of love is full of mysteries
This subtle weapon crumbles ministries.
Does your heart ever pant?
When love is uprooted like a plant;
The book of love is long and lonely
You have a crowd and yet still lonely.
The book of love is long and senseless
For all I know it’s never flawless;
The book of love has names and numbers
Love stays in touch with all its members.
The book of love is full of words
Not matched with actions even by lords;
The book of love is clean and dirty
While some drink others are thirsty.
The book of love is like a game
While some lose others make fame;
The book of love is plain and empty
Many write but few are lofty.
When love is tamed then it’s fake
Just anyone could have a take:
Love is modern, love is crude
It’s your making – bad or good.
The book of love is torn to pieces
By Dick and Harry and even princes;
The book of love is meant for all
Some rise in it while others fall.
