Love Bites You When You Least Expect It

Updated on February 1, 2012

Hey What Was That ?

Love is right next to you

Didn't you feel it ?

It is crafty and down right smart

I was looking one way then the other

I seen nothing

So I looked again

Still nothing

Then I could feel it

A tingling inside of me

What could it be?

I hope it isn't poison ivy

Boy do I hate when I itch all over and all I want to do is scratch

But this feels different

I feel excited but on edge

Like I don't know what is going to happen next

But part of me is hoping for the best

I am interested in what it could be

I am turned on in a funny sort of way

What is happening to me

Am I losing control ?

Now calm down it will pass

Just like a cold or flu it won't last

I have the cold sweats or is it the chills

This could be anything

I feel kind of queezy

I think I am hungry ?

After eating I still feel the same way

If I was an older woman I could blame it on the change

If I was a younger woman I could blame it on my cycle

If I was an older man I would say I have stomach cramps

If I was a younger man I would say I am healthy

It has to be only one thing


Love is all around us but we can't see it

Every time we sqeeze it tight it slips away

So relax and let it free to roam and play

Love needs plenty of room

It comes and goes at a whim

Just let it in

It seems foreign to those who like control

Think of it like a ball where there is space it will roll

It is funny how high we can bounce and how far it will go

Just it give it a try

Don't be shy

I will probably get in trouble for this

But it needs to be said

Let love fly

We will feel great afterwards

Sometimes we will be shocked

Love is sweet when we understand it

We don't demand anything in return

We give and have to patiently wait

Sometimes we see nothing

But love has already taken hold

It works in places we can't see

Think of all the things you have loved during your life

Would you of been better off not to have loved each one of them

Definitely not

Repeat after me

I can honestly say my life is better to have loved each time

Than to have skipped love and moved on

What good is life if you cna't find things to love

Some people love sports

They find time every day to squeeze it in

They scream and yell

You think someone took their wallet and their car

They laugh and get so excited

I have never seen a love so strong

What a deep connection

Sports fans can talk for hours and never get bored

Then there are those who love their pets

They will do everything and anything to make them happy

Talking to them as if they can talk back

Rubbing their backs more than their husbands (just a coincidence honey)

Feeding them treats and giving lots of attention 24/7

Then there are those who have a hobby

If it is sewing or cooking

Playing a sport they have loved since they were kids

Stamp and coin collecting and we can't forget those sport card fanatics

From baseball to football and basketball and hockey

They spend hours sorting and organizing

\Enjoying the players and their stats

So many people find so many pleasures

The best for last

The people we love

That inspire us to greatness

Having been loved unconditionally for all our faults

Seeing us who we are through out our whole life

If it is a parent to their children

A child to their parent or grandparents

A close friend that we have known forever

Two young people in love

A couple who has been married since the ice age

These and many more loves I search to find

Feel free to add loves that are special to you

With each love we learn and grow

To be someone who can love many loves and still find room to love more

      Dim Flaxenwick I will do my best.Every time I see you I smile. I didn't know how to tell people when you read this.... read it faster in the begininning and then when you get to Now calm down it will pass... read it at a normal pace. This sets the tempo for the writing.If there is such a thing?Another idea I don't know what to do with.So I pass it along and see where it goes.All I really care about is you.Writings are fun.The real joy is living a funny interesting and exciting life filled with love from beginning to end.The rest are just words on paper and that paper could be used in the bathroom for another purpose.(haha)or(lol)I hope both are two ply.

      Yes my friend,we all have posses some good in our spirits other wise, we could not sustain our spirits and life on this earth.

      We have to go beyond the ordinary as it is written to an Extraordinary person.That is why God gave us His Holy spirit,to perform all that He require of us in these human bodies. We grow as we know.

      Which out for the rocks in the road,for there are many.

      Peace out.

      Apostle Jack So true and I found what shines is really something quite old.People have a heart of gold we just have to dig deep enough.Many people stop when their hands get dirty.Thanx so much.

      Great poem. And to shed a little more lite on the subject I always look on the inside first.....which always seem to come out last in the equations of life when one seeks a mate. Through that,i found out that every thing that glitters is not gold.
