What Is Love?

What Is Love? By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Conceived in the eye
Amorous moonlight sky
Wanting always
To be by your side

It is not of bloodshed
Based on jealousy
The plague of otherism
Blinded churning seas

Tempest vengeance
Relentless massacre
Only to be
A temporary master

It is not love
But lust of power
The slaughter of
All outsiders

It cannot be
Our history
It cannot be
Our legacy

Masters rule
They have no love
For questioning
No love for reason

Such a deity
To force itself on me
To live under threat
I must obey thee

I cannot
I will not
Live under
Such tyranny

If your God
Thinks this of me
That I am his toy
His property

This is not love
This is the behavior
Of a childish schoolyard

“Obey me or else” blind worship, are the demands of dictators, tyrants. If you want me to believe in a God who will burn me for eternity if I don’t want to hang out with him, fuck him. I cannot stand bullies. Fortunately for humanity such a petulant schoolyard bully does not exist. Unfortunately far too many people want such a being to exist to justify the subjugation of others out of their own insecurities and fears.
