The Submission
 
Love came to me with its strange power
It rattled my bones as it moved
Over me, around me, and through me
No longer am I the mighty one alone
But the weak being swept up by
The steadfast wings of love
 
It takes my resolutions up high to
A place called uncertainty
It mocks my ambitions and truths
It replaces them with surreal facts
Love alone is the philosophy of life
Living belongs in the shadows of love
 
It casts a veil over my eyes as it
Bends me around corners
It squeezes my mind until I know nothing
Nothing but the secrets of my heart
 
Follow love through its thorny paths
Though as love shall crucify you
So shall it crown you and lift you
Up into the realm of the Gods
There shall you know what love is
