Kevork Kalayjian: Love's Lure

It is not beauty alone

It is not the abundance of wealth

It is not shared poverty

It might grow on beaches

It might give birth to gods

It is more colorful than the rainbow

It is indescribable

It does not drip like blood

It might seem untouchable

It is definitely imaginable

But you still always wonder

If it ever exists

The warmth, the tears, the jealousy, 

The aggression, the beauty ...
