Building Love

Through the windows of your face
I see two leaning towers
Which can only be supported by my column

We speak not the language of love
But rather a tower of babble
Which can only be deciphered on the walls of your pyramid

How did we build a castle of love so weighty in its weightlessness?
Will we walk these doorless corridors forever?
Should we be the tomb or the temple?

    I’ve never seen love compared to buildings before! I love how you cycle through different types to show how unsure the narrator is. Nice work! =)

    Why not just ask the lady out? Just a thought

    Then again, it is a taboo blog. So I’m probably wrong. Everything is personal is some way or another. You think she knows I’m thinking about her?

  8. the images here are so striking, especially “will we walk these doorless corridors forever”
    something about that just, mmm. I’m a sucker for assonance.
    awesome post.

    Beautiful! Because I am a neo-plantonist, I think we should be the temple…, or more precisely, we ARE the temple. Thank you πŸ™‚
