Subtly Feathered

subtlyfeatheredLove is complicated
An intricate thing
Subtly feathered
Taking to the air
Like a hurricane
Before it explodes

Love is emotional
A conflagration
On the verge of igniting
In reds and blues
At the boiling point
Then spilling over

Love is contradictory
An exercise in pain
Wrapped in velvet
Sealed with a kiss
Just like Iscariot
Waiting to destroy

Love is a mansion
Populated with rooms
Large and expansive
As empty as air
Whistling down stairs
A certain pretense

It teases the senses
And tests the limits
Struggling to survive
In a world of apathy
A town of one-way streets
Agonizing in its reach
An absolute necessity
That lives forever.
