A precious and meaningful word that is twisted constantly.

By MICHELLE SMITHPublished about a year ago 1 min read
Fall in love with not just looks but with the soul on the inside!

We are all so quick to judge from the outside inward. We are quick to fall in love with actions before knowing someone. As you read this poem, think about why you love the person you are dating, married to, or in a relationship with. Consider what love means to you and your partner. Is it lust or is it love?

L: Lust

O: Obsession

V: Vibrant

E: Extraordinary

Love is supposed to be affectionate

Love is compassion

Love is compromise

Love is two becoming one

Yet in this day in age love is lustful

True love doesn't exist much

We lust after love

We just fornicate instead of of allowing our hearts to fall in love

Love is precious

Love is sweet

Love is what we all need, yet here we are chasing the lustful things

Wishing on a start that a knight in shining armor will ride on through

Stop chasing after lust

Search for the meaning of love

Take your time, search their soul

Find who you are

Be led to your meant to be don't just pick the first you see

Leave behind the lustful thoughts

Search for what your heart really wants

We are so quick to be attracted physically but in all reality we are meant to be with just one person. We are to find that person who is our help me, our other half. We take that opportunity for granted and sometimes a lot of people let that person or opportunity slip away from them. Don't be discouraged if you haven't found the one right away, don't give up looking either. They are out there and it is okay to continue taking your time. Love is special. Don't lose sight of that!
