Reflection Of True Love

Updated on June 27, 2014

Love is a reflection of true love,

a myth,

a mirage.

A legend told by those who got a glimpse

and have been weakened ever since.

Similar to a cool rinse on the hottest day,

the feeling of butterflies holding a concert.

Love is a pervert.

True love is real love when you don't have to make it work.

      You may be too young to have seen or heard of the movie "Love Story" but in it, the girl says "Love means never having to say you're sorry." That concept stirred controversy too, in a similar vein.

      These concepts may be too ideal for real life, but there is certainly food for thought, both in not having to try to make it work and in not needing to say you're sorry, when one thinks of what it would really mean.

      It would be so genuine, so well-fitting and compatible that it would just BE, not something to be thrown like a pot or painted like a picture. It would work because it was real.

      And one would be willing to say "sorry" if it were needed, but it wouldn't be needed because, first of all, there would be enough understanding that hurtful acts just wouldn't happen or if they did occur, the other person would understand and would not blame or be offended.

      But - how ideal is that? :-)

      In ways, poetry is about the ideal, the possibility of better things.

      It's a lovely thought, beautifully expressed, Daunte.

      I see what your saying and you've put it so simply. True love desires but doesn't need anything from the other so how can it hurt? Its a higher love that only comes through our higher selves which we are all searching for!

      Daunte, contrary to what may be popular opinion, I agree with your poem. Relationships require work but when people truly love each other, there should not be a battle to keep the relationship alive.

      When true love is present - as in the Biblical definition of love as demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 13 - members of a relationship would be more concerned about the needs and desires of their partner, rather than themselves, which makes all the difference.

      True love requires commitment, dedication, honesty, trust and numerous other factors but it should not be a daily struggle just to make the relationship work; that's only true of relationships in which members are selfish and focused primarily on their own needs and desires.

      I agree with you Norma, this poem was written at a point in my life where nothing was going smoothly. So you can imagine how I felt about love.
