One might suggest love
for it offers solace to a rainy day.
An emotional sojourn whether ascending
or driven into the depths of despair.
Once when held in the arms of compassion,
the human condition is found to feel a fire.
When lost inside the convoluted nature of misgiving,
a heart becomes clearly detached from soul.
What an adventure is love,
to withstand the battlefield,
to level the storm,
try to understand the torrential fires
that do sweep the mind completely from our heart.
What is it then remains in the aftermath
when two people practice refusal
one decidedly lives happily in torment.
