Dedicated to Coolaaron for his 'True love' exposition in "A Love Thought".

218. The truth about the matter

The truth about the matter
is that love, if true, is too deep to be properly expressed
and never, therefore, can be expressed enough,
and therefore, the truer and the deeper your love is,
the more easily it gets misunderstood,
and then starts the real process
of introversion, broodings without end and in eternity,
the problematic analysis of what went wrong,
which nothing really did,
love just got entangled in itself and by itself,
got stuck like that famous interrupted coitus recently explained,
was too deep and too true to get a forum in reality,
in brief, turned into a hopeless ideal.
How do you solve that problem?
It's just impossible.
Love once turned into an ideal remains an ideal,
and there is no cure for it, it just goes on forever,
like a satellite launched into space to wander on forever
into nothing but with the most important message on board
of all eternity explaining all the universe
and holding within the innermost and deepest of all secrets
of life itself.

Though I could never expound the complexities of love as you have here...I do agree with your poem, love is far too deep to be expressed enough....though, in the simplest of terms I find love to be an indefinable force that sometimes has no reason, and therefore makes our wanting of it all the more desirable. Another lovely piece from you Christian.

Yes, prosaic, as it goes on from Coolaaron's equally prosaic "A Love Thought". Thanks for the comment.

Aesthetic of love is dealt with in this poem and didactic of the unaviodable feeling. Nice one but prosaic.
