What Is Love

Love is when you have a butterflies in the pit of your stomach When you are near someone that makes you jittery. Do not confuse this with lust Because you may spend your life in misery. Love will find you when you least expect Always show others respect This will attract people to you like opposite polarities Then you might find someone with common similarities Love is when you cannot stand to spend time apart Even though you are together in heart However, true loves test is trust in the other When you cannot be together Jealousy is an ugly beast That may just drive a wedge from the northwest to the southeast Love is also blind. You may just find it when you’re in a bind It could be at a church, an event, or even at work They could also be in your friend’s network Love also allows us to look past bad traits Especially if we find our soul mates Love can make us do a crazy thing. That would make our love’s heart sing You could jump out of a plane Or something else that may cause pain One could leap bounds Possibly even fight a boxer for a few rounds Love is unconditional While also dispositional It is not meant to be contrived And we should not let ourselves be deprived For love is a beautiful gift According to Jonathan Swift Love is not for others to critique Because most of all love is unique.
