If love was a suffix,
it would be confined,
to merely three letters at
the end of a word.
If love was human we wouldn't
recognize him, like he was foreign,
as if he were a martian.
If love was alive it would be exclusively
shared by those who are living.
If love was dead, than we would have
no reason to live.
If love was reason, then all of our
frontal lobes would be married.
If love was the ocean it would be fathomed.
If love was a mountain it could be climbed.
If love is just a feeling we'd all get over it.
If love is a dream then we are still sleeping.
If love is just a phase then how come I'm not over it?
Love is divine, and Love is an endless longing of the soul
for its maker, and can only be satisfied by the ageless creator.
