Captured Love

If one could capture love

What would it look like and how would it be?

Would it be a flame
with reds, blues, and yellows burning bright
or would it be like sunlight
forever blinding keeping out the darkness known as night?
If one could capture love
Would it be like poison deadly to the touch?
Or could one breath it in to keep
From days to months till years has passed?
To leave behind memories buried deep within the sand
laid to rest by the kindness of another’s hand.
If one could capture love
Would one let it go
Or keep it as a treasure
a secret that only few may ever know?
Or would one share it
Beyond oneself and the world at large
If one could capture love
I wish it be all these things and more
I wish it like the ocean stretching shore to shore
So it can find and spread to those that needs it most.
If one could capture love
know that it is precious
for love is not something measured or visualized
it stands alone.
Let it not be captured but shared
Not kept but felt
for love like so many other things
lives within the heart.
