All This



~~~

Love

Flung by Cupid’s poisoned dart

Has fallen the strongest nations

Reason for the war to start

The passionate complications

Sacrament to human heart

Bed chamber romances

With kingdoms at stake

Lost in stolen glances

Hearts prone to mistake

And blind to their chances

What price is not ready-paid

For that great singularity

To rue the decisions made

When passion poisons clarity

Betrayal becomes the blade

Given this, all one can own

Entire countries in a day

Civilizations over-thrown

Kings throwing thrones away

All for this one thing alone

Love
