When it Comes to Love

Don’t insult me with mediocrity
When it comes to love
I’m a woman of passion
Of intensity
Trilling “I'll set you on fire”
Mentality
Not a “Sure, why not?”
Neutrality
Don’t insult me with mediocrity
When it comes to love.

Don’t appease me
When it comes to love
I’m a woman of dignity
Of sincerity
Honest “I can see through you!”
Ability
Not an “I’m so touched”
Complacency 
Don’t appease me
When it comes to love

Don’t quiet me
When it comes to love
I’m a woman of expression
Of confession
Not a “Everything’s fine”
Morality
But a “You consume me!”
Totality
Don’t quiet me
When it comes to love.

Don’t fool me
When it comes to love
I’m a woman of discernment
Of understanding
Not a “I’ll share you”
Congeniality
But a “You're all mine!”
Fatality
Don’t fool me
When it comes to love.

When it comes to love...
Your my possession
My cognition
My "You're the man of my dreams"
Confession
My "You color my world."
Expression
My "You make me melt."
Obsession
When it comes to love
That's what you are to me.

    Wow, one of your best Eileen - and that's saying something! I loved the stark contrasts between the indifference and the passion. It totally suits you and you expressed yourself amazingly. The bigger words in the middle aren't easy to work with, but it seemed effortless coming from your pen. Extraordinarily written!

    Thanks, Kash. I am passionate about many things. I've written a poem entitled Passionate about Life. If you get the chance, maybe you can give it a read. Thanks for stopping by.
