Eternal Valentine

true love is not obsessed
with images or labels, it leaves
such necessity to logically illogical
minds that attach symbols
to an eternal valentine,

it is curiously deep,
and deepens increasingly,
no easy euphemisms for its creativity;
life new-born that does not cry,
knowledge that precedes sight,
dialectics of its liberation
convert to its faith;

true love is not a detour
of random notes written in the dark
that suddenly become the greatest
commandments for the mind,
nor secreted themes wrapped
to immodest thoughts,

it is a place from which no sin
may stem, none can feel shame
from a rose's velvet touch,
who can proclaim as profane
deeds of passion that nurture
the fruits of its labour?
