Love is

Love is the most wretched emotion!
Watch it bring a strong man to his knees.
Still he would not trade his broken heart.

Love is a confusing emotion.
It is a blend of pleasure and pain.
Once we have tasted we will not stop.

Love is a transcendent emotion!
It helps us see ourselves at our best.
As we are seen through true loves eyes.

Love is much more than an emotion.
Love's evidence is all around us.
Do you recognize Love's Purest Form?


For Sheri Frosonke Harper's contest " Three or more thoughts on the same idea."

Great idea for a contest Sheri, thanks for the inspiration.

    RL, "Do you recognize Love's Purest Form?" Is a question that I believe only God can answer, for man's mere living in an impure world blinds him to the true "Essence of Love"...Great thought provoking write my friend...like this very much!//Robert

    No matter what form it comes to us in, there is no doubt that love is all around us. Sometimes, in a good way or a bad way, but it is always there, just waiting to be found. I enjoyed this poem, Richard, very nicely done! I wish you the best of luck in the contest!

    Hi Richard, I always say Love is the ultimate dream. You have described the emotion of Love very well and as you so rightly say we Keep coming back. I keep the rose within my heart, therefore the Love never leaves me and I don't feel the sadness of the loss of Love like other people. Still, for almost all your words do ring true. I wish you well in the contest my friend. Love is the most powerful emotion we possess, It can build it can destroy. I can read this in your words Richard. Good write.

    That is so true, its a state of being that makes everything so heady - the joy, the heart-ache, the constant need to go back to it... Intriguing, I mean for one emotion to rule like that!! Well written, as always.

    Richard, thank you for your comment. This is a wise poem. Love does have its downside, especially when it is not shared. On the other hand, we can love what we do all by ourselves.
