What Love Is-My Definition
Below is an attempt - yes, just an attempt at defining love my way.en have a
Love is the thrill I feel
When I kneel to reveal
to my God the appeal
of being with you still.
Love is the smile that bridges the miles
between turmoil and the files
of excess piles of magnificent tiles
of feelings that lift me to the skies.
Love is the croak
that manages to go for broke
each time I, your beauty, soak
as you divest yourself of your cloak
Love is the misery
of waiting endlessly
for the time to seamlessly
enter your embrace ceaselessly
Love is the coup
that makes my heart pound anew
when I think of someone so alive and true
Someone so amazingly YOU.
Love is a subject I like to dwell upon but I know that as one grows, one becomes lost for words to use in defining what true love really means! I have watched people get confused when you ask them what love is. Children have a different perception and adults also have theirs but all perceptions are right because they bring definitions that come from theheart.
Love cannot be defined and any attempt to do so is just that - an attempt. Love is felt and experienced and that is its best definition. However, it won't stop me from attempting to define it in my own words because each time I think of love (whether EROS - the love between lovers, spouses, etc. or PHILOS - the love that is platonic or just friendship love or evenAGAPE - the sacrificial kind of love especially the type God demonstrates towards us) I feel like writing it in poetry
