A poem by Raea Adams


Confuse love for lust

Misplace love in car wrecks,

Throw it away when angels bless you with it

Taint it with your pure agony,

Let obsession desecrate it

Do what you will with it.


Love is a matter of the heart

A state of the mind.

Romances are beyond human

Moonlight rainbows

Sunlight rain drops

Shadowed theatre shows

Jaded hearts re-lit with a firey spark.


Gain an affinity for the marvels

You miss with your phone’s camera lens.
