Tunnels of love ........

Today I was accosted by a new
found revelation
Something I failed to see all
along
Was it the flesh and bone that I
fell into love with ....or was it was the idea alone
Someone once said
that.....
" you are in love with the idea of love itself"
though I say no
dont give love that much credit
you see that would explain
everything
And there are far too many
questions
And they still
remain
unanswered
And as to lights at the end
of the tunnels
Another old friend of mine
said......
Beware of the trains.......

And why bother?

Love or idea, I choose to never ponder

If it make me happy

So better let it be

Cherish every moment

For I never alone

In the end of the road it seems

With respect, honor and friendship it might win

Whether it was an idea to began with

Or real love as beautiful as it's myth

And what is it about the train?

With acts of love like pouring rain

The station is closed until the end of day

It will passed, but never stay

PS: you are man of inspiration indeed! ^^

That light can be false if one just randomly walks through the darkness. That is why I choose to stay on the path instead of meandering. Thanks ahorseback. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Freya , my dear girl, In this writing I was thinking about the old Bugs Bunny cartoon when a light at the far end of the tunnel becomes a frieght train coming at him to chase him out of the tunnel, Much like love no ? .....and you wrote what you did from the heart ! Now I feel bad that you might look badly on love . I could not stand for someone so young and with such a shining heart and soul to look with disfavor on the promise of love. You will have it I know! Thank you for showing your heart , always !.....Ed

bugs bunny? lol. And only extra ordinary person who could found something poetic about bugs bunny. lol.

You didn't any responsibility on my negative perception about love, because I already have it for so long. Most love is an idea. After 3 - 7 years it will gone. Only honour, respect and friendship will able to keep it stay or even growing. that's, and unrequited one, which fueled by obsession.

bugs bunny? lol.

Ed- another lovely writing! Thank you for sharing! Freya, if you don't mind me saying, I disagree with you. I met my husband & asked him to marry me 5 days later. We married a year after that, and have been married since 2000. I love him MORE with every passing day.... I feel like the honour, respect and friendship has only fueled the love. I hope that you find the same thing, one day, so you will be convinced! Hugs to you both, Ed and Freya!

Oh Freya , what remains of the passion and lust in the beginning of love IS honor, respect , friendship, Love is not lost nor forgotten and away but simply renewed in unknown ways ! I will tell you this , to reach across the bed in darkness JUST to touch the one who changed your life.....and that touch is returned ......is love!..... Passion, lust , chemistry........all that boils down to love!.......:-}

if love has reasons, then it's not love at all, for the mind thinks, thus, gives reasons...the heart can only feel and expresses its love...

Racinwa, No ,I think not ! I will give you this , A woman loves more by the heart than the mind , and a man more by the mind than the heart perhaps! BUT together the bond is unbreakable when the two it work....:-}
