Love...

If love were simple and understood
Then most would share its wondrous joy
But love is a gnostic arcane mood
Mysterious decried by Sygmond Freud
Nietzscheís belief wasnít want to care
While loveís paradox was Jungís concern
For Jesuits discussion lays love bare
Augustine taught itís for the soul to yearn
The Beatles swear loveís all there is
Patsy Kline sang of love as crazy
For Tennessee Williams a great gin fizz
With E A Poe it was melancholy
As for me I stand aloof
Still awaiting the perfect proof
