Altercations in longing........

Short and sweet !

The two met quite by accident and both
bitter and slightly jaded
Yet longing knows no pride in a new beginning
love's often been over-stated

And the idea of love is but a fantasy
no mood lasts forever
Except the mood of adoration
And yet ...never say never

Perhaps as we all journey into and
out of new beginnings
At some later date we might share
tallying up all our winnings

As long as in the end
that longing itself fades quietly away
Until once again there comes a perfect
beginning.... a perfect love ....a perfect day

Just right! Just the right touch. As for me, I do not move along so easily. But they seem to be able to move along just fine ;-)

I like how you describe love as a mood, Happiness is a mood for sure, but Love? I never thought of it that way, but yes moods always change, so can we love and not love someone? Yes. Does that make it a mood? Hmm... reminds me of a quote from the show One Tree Hill. "Happiness is a mood, not a destination." Can we say the same for love? But I know my love for say, my mom.. that will never change. Mood or not. and for my Kittens, perhaps those are unconditional loves, or moods if you will, and others are conditional... very interesting hub.

Hi Nikki , Perhaps mood isn't the best choice of word , I will always remember a wise old man once told me in a long talk about life . "No mood whatsoever can go on for very long ", everything changes , does love ?, It Can , that's for sure . Yet no as well , there are loves that are eternal , "mom" , our pets , family . How DO we describe love ? Thanks for making me think ! lol......Ed
