True Love Does Not Care

True love does not care True love is a dragon sleeping deep within the realms of our souls Hibernated until awakened by its other half Once alive it is an uncontrollable beast on the hunt It destroys any notion you have held of love before True love is simple and uncomplicated True love is a creator of lives And a destroyer of worlds True love does not care if you are in the middle of a life It will wreck you with its single mindedness Those who judge have never felt true love Or were lucky enough to find their other half first True love does not care about weddings and appearances or social mores True love cares about proximity True love is a consumer It devours time with fantasies and dreams It takes in years as quickly as a mortal second True loves thirst cannot be quenched Once you have drank from truest love's lips nothing will ever again quell the hunger True love does not care about feelings True love does not care about the pain of others Only stopping the aching from separation of its other half Only a human being is ignorant enough to slap the gods in the face over their gift Only an arrogant human would fight a feeling so strong Are we noble for hiding our pain for the sake of others Are we lucky to have found each other and known truest simplest happiness for the briefest of times. Are we lucky because our paths crossed and we were able to experience each other Were we lucky to have made a connection so deep that most will never understand Or are those who have never experienced the excruciating pain and joy of true love luckiest To lead a life of quiet happy contentment or know the taste of the person put here for you.
