Love is like a small speck,
of light in a puffed cloud,
awakens faith’s affects,
with a pure silent vow.
A paused drop of clear peace,
that casually falls,
distant bells in the breeze,
that answer unheard calls.
Love will move deep inside,
and make hearts yearn for more,
intrusive event ride,
that clutches at the core.
It lifts spirits up high,
until joy floats around,
to abruptly stops dry,
so all hopes hit the ground.
Love hurts and also burns,
flows lava through frail veins,
as false illusions churn,
deceit laughs at the pain.
It flutters so quickly,
to reach destiny’s edge,
then brings hearts back swiftly,
with an unspoken pledge.
Love is a lit ember,
that flickers and fades,
Drizzles chills and tremors,
melts into a tough stain.
Senses create fires,
that dissolve ingrained wit,
yet all drown in desires
to return back to it.
Love is infinite light,
felt inside of the chest,
a soft touch that feels bright,
and can pass any test.
It’s the “maybe in time”,
that chases every goal,
preservation and climb,
that sprouts within each soul.
Love is felt through insight,
and at times can be seen,
it’s the dark and the light,
and the gray in between.
throughout the universe,
it lands and unravels,
to cure earth’s dire thirst.
– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Love is a silhouette that creeps back and forth between the lines on sheets, a phantom sometimes whispering
A perfect memory held in chanel and christened by cherubs encircling, a heart-shaped missing part of me
Through the tattered and yellowing passages from bold to grey letters breach, and old wounds will still shriek
I could taste paradise anytime I wanted to once, but a barren calamity is the only language left for me to speak
I put up sails and tread the dawn of upcoming day shunned, it withers with years or grow into deep emerald fields sweet
A kiss to the nape in a sanctuary of arms from behind with familiarity enshrined, the warmth of divinity intertwined
These affections loose from its quiver and fired, the prize of eros ensnared and splayed my holy pride and dined
The laughter of time that lingers on in muscle memory to a form no longer mine, the arrogance of lovers not yet to trial
The endless cycle of spectres adorned in a spectrum beyond eyes, I court a scene that shall remain colourless and undefined
These deep bonds like roots being pulled from their plot and sign, a gaping hole I tried to fill with any colour filled vibe
Learning to love the light reaching for you through the cracks in your blinds again, sight when you’ve been blinded in the end
Opening up and expressing even when you’re trembling and reliving it in your skin, the ugliest parts you can’t mend
The strength it takes to begin again and widen the road when you have so many loaded in, the bravery despite mistaken trends
Trying not to fall back in familiar ruts when these scars can open twice as big, oaths we make when we love family and friends
Knowing how dark the lows can be and how grim the lulls can spin, overcoming this depression for a chance at myself and peace
This is absolutely beautiful….I love it✨
Thanks so much💕
Omg this is amazing
