The Religion Of Hearts

Love is blind 
And lovers can not see 

How many colours does the heart possess 
How many emotions drawn from it's pockets  
Where shades of darkness do belong 


If religion is not to be understood 
What of the heart, in temples of worship 
Where love is religion, and it is religion 


And religion of the heart is worshipped
In the eyes of the faithful, love has to be blind  
A dozen prophecies are seen, in abstract


How many meanings can be of essence
Is it for the love or for the pain, 
It burns in vellicate on emotions drag 


For faith or prophecy 
Who holds crystal balls 
To be told of the future by the sightless oracle 


Which side of the heart, holds pain
Which side does hold love
Which side of the heart is set aside for hate 


A collage of the heart, seats like religious symbols
Sends out, tell tell signs of heat signal senses
Is this how I am to understand the heart 

In abstract essence, like religious stands
And faith is said to hold belief,  it has to 
That is all we are to go on by for love has to be blind

  5. A heart that hates
    Is but a shadow of a heart
    Less than a caricature
    Only a sponge
    Saturated in poison
    Squeezing out darkness
    In the name of righteousness
    A masquerade
    An abomination
    All who come in contact
    Must suffer
    Most of all
    The poisoner
