LOVE

We should be careful when we toss the word love around…

Love is so demanding and sensitive that the least little thing can turn love into tolerance, into unhappiness and into betrayal or departure.

Love is about C-o-n-t-a-c-t.

Love hates to be taken advantage of and when it comes from family, it hurts a little more and dilutes the blood bond.

If you tell me you love me, let it come with permission from your heart.

Love can uplift or give the heart fits...

Elevate you or break you.

We should be careful when we toss the word love around.

Love is fickle; it has been known to give you a mental throne or strip you to the bones and leave you alone...

Love has to be nourished or it will perish...

It has to be watered like a plant to survive or it will wilt and die.

Love lives to love…Will attack and defend its boundaries against all adversaries.

Has been known to weaken because of trickery….Lies and mistrust have often led to heart failure and love dies and seeks a rebirth in another body, another heart, another eye.

      Great poem :).... I guess we share similar thoughts when it comes to love. As one of my hub speaks about how we handle love as a human being is very detrimental. Keep up the good work and continue to treated love with utmost respect.
