I Am Drawn To Love

Updated on March 19, 2017

Like A Moth Is To Light

Time does not matter

My feelings and my emotional state constantly change

The passion that I feel now

Is new to me

I see only what is on the surface

Like picking up a book and looking at the title

You can read the front and back cover

What the book is really about is still hidden in the pages

I feel great joy

Then as my day progresses

This joy is put on hold

Where it shouldn't be

I go to discuss my feelings

People rather talk about the weather or the news

I just don't understand

If I am feeling so grand

Why would I want to put that thought on hold

When I take the time to explain

People say now is not the time or the place

It is as if I am talking about something forbidden

I am talking about the greatest feelings I have ever felt

A high people get when they do drugs

( Drug Free)

The most amount of energy one person can feel at any one moment

I ask others how they feel

They quickly change the subject and become uncomfortable

So people can talk about all the bad things in the world

Everything from public shootings and people dying

All the problems that happen on a daily basis

Not Love

The most basic and natural of all

It's still taboo after all these years

It brings a real heavy sadness to my heart

What have we become

More like thoughtless mechanical machines than real people

Has society programmed our thinking subconsciously

How do we take back what is ours to begin with

Ever since I can remember

I loved the feeling of being loved

My mother and father and family gave me that so called security blanket

Where no matter what happens

We love you

Now just because I am older

I am suppose to ignore the greatest feelings in the world

It's not going to happen

Now I know why so many people are angry and upset

If we can't enjoy love

Anything else is just substitutes for the real thing

In time if not now

The thoughts that we felt don't last

So people think by doing other things they enjoy

That will give them the love they are searching for

Love is not man made

So nice and beautiful things are no replacement

It is like talking about eating a marshmallow

Compared to eating one

Try it for yourself

It costs nothing to do

You tell me if it is the same

I don't think so

So that is why Love can and never will be bought

It is a feeling that comes from deep within

So special and rare

I find it so delicate and sensitive

At the same time as powerful as the strongest wind

So unpredictable and wishy washy

Caring and pleasant

Yes I am still talking about love

Addictive ?

Competitive ?

I am not sure

Maybe sometimes

So natural and earth shattering

That is why I am here today

My love started with the love of my parents

So it seems only right

It would be ingrained in the core of who I am

As I only touch upon the fragile tips of love

My love grows leaps and bounds

It can not be contained

I do not feel ashamed

It makes me want to exclaim

Love is beautiful !!!!

When I was little

There were these sayings in plastic, wood, clay

Probably every material known to man

Love is....

After all these years

I can't believe

Through everything I have lived through

Love is ....

      Gypsy Rose Lee Spring Fever has hit the whole family. I watch as my smile becomes bigger. My wife has a little bounce in her step. Our cat Charlotte is running back and forth. Then she even started climbing the walls. We opened a window she finally calmed down. Thank you for sharing your insight and joy.

      John Hansen Love can be tossed, dropped, misplaced even lost. It finds it's way back stronger and more beautiful than ever. Love in the morning, love at night, love all day through makes me feel just right. Thank you for reading and sharing a love that grows, grows and grows. Have a sensational day.Manatita44 My day started off quietly and peaceful all day. The weather turned warmer and our snow is melting. I had plans and they got canceled. Thank you for seeing and sharing. May all our good thoughts continue to exceed any we previously have known.

      I think that we're had our 1st day. Really 'cool.' Now today is not so 'hot' but hey, I'm not complaining. Thanks for the inputs. Loving thoughts.-Lantern.

      Manatita44 Such amazing feelings that keep rising to the surface like the foam on top of a ocean wave. It is hidden until the exact moment and then we can see it in the light. Then it again travels deep where it seems gone again only to reappear somewhere else beautifully fulfilling our basic wants and desires. Thank you for reading and sharing. Love gives us everything to live for and so much more.

      Love is ...

      So true, when all is said and done. Another piece of excellent 'embroidering' of life.
