[tab id=1]Red, pinks and all those sweet hues
The colours of love that may come to your view
Pelted purple is my love to you
Hands of sweet caress which offer you rest
Shoveled fists to teach you what’s best

[restrict]Agape* bestowed, blessed thee
Only a gape left in me
To pour out your precious red,
It was more than my heart that bled

What knows a bleeding heart
than to love
All I know is your love made my nose run red and my body dead

Love is kind
Love is true
Jesus even died for You
Love warped my mind and turned me blue
I almost died for You

Mein tumse pyaar karta hoon†
Naan unnai kadhalikkiren^
Ngiyakuthanda**
I love you
Love in many forms
But all set to deform
A person,
Relief only lies in mortality
Lying there in your loving brutality
Love
Has only
Hurt.

* Agape: One of Aristotle’s types of love, “unconditional love”, usually between family.
† Mein tumse pyaar karta hoon: Hindi
^ Naan unnai kadhalikkiren: Tamil
** Ngiyakuthanda: Zulu All mean “I love you”, in my various cultural influences.[/restrict][/tab]
[tab id=2]Ravona is a lawyer by profession, and a struggling artist by passion. A lover of poetry since an early age, she has picked up the pen in an attempt to put her thoughts into verse only in the past year. She mostly writes from a personal perspective about the many issues that seem to haunt women, or at the very least her identity as a woman in the world.
