I missed day one and two of Wrting101 Poetry Course, here is my belated entry.
Day 2: Reflections. Prompt is ‘Reflections’ by Melinda Kucsera
Everyone wants love but nobody knows what it is. Poets, philosophers and neuropsychologists, describe the greatest emotion we ever felt. “What is love” though, is still missing a universal truth. We don’t need to know it, I daresay, let’s not go this way; love is love, just love.
They say love is chemistry, disguised in a cocktail of dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and vasopressin. Is love selfless, or a give and take? Others believe is a show of multiple faces. You see fraternity, compassion and affection. There is much passion, flirting and bonding. Does it matter, what they say? No way; love is love, just love.
Does love reveal through true soul mates, becoming one, and a mirror image? Is ‘one’ a reflection of another, without a border, trading ‘oneself’ for a shadowed existence? Listen no more. You and me are not ‘we’, we are in love, and that’s all that what we are supposed to be.
Don’t ask questions and forget the reflections. Forget psychology and philosophy, because love, is just poetry. Love is love, just love.
I attempted to make a prose poem. Not easy. What do you think?
