We never talked about love.
We shared stories of historical heroes
And literary poets,
The valour of Alexander’s army,
And the depth of Shakespeare’s sonnets.
We whispered the beauty
Of ancient lores and tales,
And sparred over our ideas
Of Marx and Engels.
No, we never talked about love.
Instead, we caressed our souls
With the kind of passion
That engulfed us like a raging flame
Burning our hearts and emotion.
