I light the candle of love
Beaming a radiant glare of pain and gain
I reminisce about the feeling,
Lingering butterflies in the meadow of my heart
I kissed each flower in nectar sweetness
For you were the garden
But I once read, “love and pain are perfect twins”
So let’s kindle and rekindle this candle of love
Till it forever glows the undying mystery
“love and pain are perfect twins”!
Love and Pain was inspired by the poem Butterfly Love. You can read more of Isama Peace’s poetry at Isama Peace Blog.
