Love Is…

Love is patient…

so they say
I’ll believe this
’til dying day

Love is free…

it does not chain
its subject down
with fear
or threats,
it opens doors,
a key under mat

Love is light…

it keeps it on
the candle lit,
the lantern aglow

Love is two wholes…

side by side
two spirits aflame,
swirling fires
stoking
each other’s heat
lying together
cheek to cheek

Love is fluid…

it cannot stall
flowing from
within the soul

Love is boss…

despite attempts
to rationalize
direct it toward
what we specify
denying it will
make you sick

Love is love…

no matter where you go
it will find you

Love is limitless…

its bounds endless
trust it knows
better than we
all is not lost
more can be gained
with open heart ready

to love again…

  2. Emily! Did I ever tell you that you are a breath-taking poet? Well, you are my friend.

    Love is two wholes…

    two spirits aflame,
    swirling fires
    stoking

    I picture this poem perfectly and so senual in its delight of desire. Pure love this poem. 🙂
