Lust vs. Love

Do you or don’t know what true love is?

Lust is temporary

Love is eternal

Lust is not a lasting fulfillment

Desire comes with love

Love, you will not get tired of

There is no true romance in lust,

It’s just an illusion.

Love is the real deal,

It’s a craving that never goes away.

Lust is seasonal

Love is all year round

Lust is a pit stop/ detour

Love is home sweet home

Lust is there only during good times

Love is there in good times and bad times

Lust takes only

Love gives and take

Lust easily abandoned

Love you make it feel secure all the time
