Thicker than blood

Love thicker than blood
deeper than any sea
freer than any air
an incandescent fire

sky cannot shelter it
nor the moon illuminate
its furthest actions or
its deeper recesses

love longer than time
more encompassing
than any space
more succinct

than any word
No battle can ever
defeat it no betrayal
ever taint it

Love thicker than blood
more compelling
than any kiss
love is what it is

John Lyons
