If love were simple and understood
Then most would share its wondrous joy
But love is a gnostic arcane mood
Mysterious decried by Sygmond Freud
Nietzsche's belief wasn't want to care
While love's paradox was Jung's concern
For Jesuits discussion lays love bare
Augustine taught it's for the soul to yearn
The Beatles swear love's all there is
Patsy Kline sang of love as crazy
For Tennessee Williams a great gin fizz
With E A Poe it was melancholy
As for me I stand aloof
Still awaiting the perfect proof
