Consciousness & Love

I was musing on the theme of absence of love and this scene played out in my head. 🙂

Consciousness sat alone at the bar
A whisky drying in his hands
He glanced up at the door from which
Love walked out with dissent;
The doors swung open, in they walked
Deceit, Confusion and Pride
Espying a chance for tomfoolery
They advanced to commence the ride

Sat them down two and one aside
They drank and heard his sorrows
Then pried them open his empty heart
In which vessel they vilely poisoned;
‘Twas not long afore inebriation filled
The place with raucous laughter
Where Consciousness lay in half-stupor
With a heart contemptuously withered

But hark those footsteps soft and sure
They stopped at his side and waited
Trailed her hand down his flushed-browed face
As she leaned and gently whispered;
His eyes flicked open as her words tore down
The coldness that gripped his heart, as he
Stood up slowly and reached for her
And took her in his arms

For Love had only stepped away
When anger threatened to destroy
But she would never leave his side
Through joy and sorrows, day and night;
Take her, protect her and keep her close
That our lives may sustain our spirits
For Love is gentle and kind and true
And everlasting, an eternal haven.

    • Thank you once again! 😀 It was quite an experience with the concepts as characters “flowing through” the scene in my head. Have a blessed day! 🙂

        I was actually just wondering if we give them a persona, do you think it would make these spirits seem real to people as a way of understanding their impact on our lives? Interesting…

      • Hmm that is an interesting idea you brought up.. for me it does give the concepts a physicality that makes them easier to grasp; my musician friends heard music and melodies as they read 😀 I’m inspired to write more such stuff hehe ^^
