Love is not Free

A friend recently stated that love is free
Oh no, Oh no, my friend, love it is not free
In fact love is the total opposite to free
It comes at the highest price of all
It takes you and binds your very being
And rips all freedom totally asunder
For love is the total lack of freedom
True love requires tender nurture and care
It requires loyalty beyond reproach
It requires utter truth in all its forms
Utter devotion in times of great turmoil
Loyalty when the rest of the world is against
It requires belief, hope and herculean strength
It requires constantly your very inner core
The sacrificing of self for others wants and needs
An undying tolerance and total empathy
Oh no, Oh no, my friend, love it is not free
If it is deep and real, its chains they bind for life
But in its gaining, it is the ultimate treasure found.

    I signed up just to comment. Love is free. Why? Because love cannot be controlled. Everything you mentioned is simply the effects of love. Still, it can't be willed into being or away. Can't be bought or sold. Once it is there, try controlling it. Anybody that says they can turn on and off those feelings of deep devotion are either using drugs to manipulate their mind or they are lying.
