Just when you thought it was all over
And told to wash your hands of it
One sneaky lingering look says it all
And it is still there, alive and kicking
Almost proud and not too surprised
Despite the rumour, love never dies

It can even explode into a supernova
Or make a pearl from an oyster’s grit
The blinding light from a lightning ball
And one can hear a timebomb ticking
Once a significant sound is recognised
Yet mostly, pure raw emotion applies

Do not wait to find a four-leaf clover
Luck just looks on when fires are lit
Hear a Siren song and heed the call
When low hanging fruit needs picking
Always meant to be tasted and prized
Love persists, however hard one tries

Really intricate. I can see how well thought out this is or maybe how well organized the initial idea was right from conception. It took three reads but I really like the layers of mystery. Persistence indeed.
