Acts of Love

Love is not a word,
Or thought.
It’s the name for
An action
That breathes from its light.
What do you
DO
In Love’s name?
And is it only done
Outside in the light,
Or with an inner
Flame
Illuminating
Love’s
TRUE
Name?

I want to know.

Are your actions
Done by remote,
Or with
SOUL?

And when you say
You love someone,
Does a light go off
Inside at all?

What have
YOU
Done
In the
Name of
LOVE?

Because,
Really,
I want to know.
