Love is the Lion

Love is the Lion, it has to be Tamed,
Nailed to the floor, Beaten and Maimed.
Love won’t obey, like a meek little Lamb,
it Lies and Deceives, it’s Truths are a Sham.
Few are exempt from Loves Beastly Bite,
All those opposed will Lose in their Fight.
Its jaws are too quick, they hold on Forever,
No one escapes, the Dim or the Clever.

Love is uncertain, mixed and unsure,
A Dead End to some and others a Door.
It Tears us to Pieces, Plays with our Blood,
Drops us from Heaven, to land with a thud.
All you can Hope, is this Feeling will go,
A Malicious Contender, the Deadliest Foe.
Love is the Battle, Fought from within,
Advancements are made, but Never we win.

Love is an Idol, we Perform all the Rites,
By Bowing Before it, on Numerous Nights.
Oblations Apart, Libations Profane,
That Demon of Love will Always Remain.
It Murders our Mind, Tramples our Soul,
Upon all Mankind, it’s taken it’s Toll.
It Drags us Beneath, Kills with a Shove,
We Rarely Forget that First Fickle Love.
