Shush about Love

Stop it about love!
Talk no more of the fantasy;
Have read Shakespeare and Shelley,
Mrs.Browning is quite intense
As Mr.Donne is different.
But you shush about love,
For I see not love today.
I see flesh and the cravings of the mind,
I see scars and the pains of a tired soul.
I see not love but sorrow;
The haloes of darkness
Around her holy eyes.
Shush about love!
You are ruining the insomnia
With that banter about love.
Let me sit through the night
Ponder on the ravings of my madness
So purse those lips shut
And let me sit straight.
