Elusive Love

Its absence tinges everything you do
As you try to make a perfect organ
From a fist of blood

    1. *blush* Thank you, Val… High praise indeed. I saw a medical documentary last week – all about heart procedures – and there were a few scenes where the physical organ was held up for close inspection. The bloody, beating piece of flesh was so far removed from the shape we’ve all come to associate with love, and it made me think about how far people are prepared to go in search of it. I wanted to convey how the quest for love invades every part of our lives when we’re obsessed with finding it. And how we look for “perfect love” to fill the chambers of an organ which looks far from perfect when held up to the light.
