Ineffable, yet Highly Electric

All you need is love,
it has been said
a time, or two, or three
dozen thousand trillions
and a quarter
to the eleventh degree
with an exponential cherry
added on top
where life is sweetest.

The reason it has to be
repeated so often
is because a poem, a song,
or even a symphony –
complete with flashing lights
and firecrackers
bursting in the sky –
still cannot come close
to capturing the essence
of the purest emotion.

Thank God
I can finally feel it
as both a fire and a flood.

It doesn’t even matter
if I mix my metaphors
because with this truth
words will never be enough.
