at the commencement of their relationship
falls into a ‘honeymoon’-like period
in which everything the other does seems just so perfect
caught in a twilight zone between love and lust.
as time goes on
sturdy, steadfast love
begins to take over.
but what would a young relationship be
without some lust to fuel the fire?
people tend to mix up the two emotions in their mind
and they may come to feel that love is harder to find
than they once believed.
my lover once said to me
i used to think i knew what love is,
but it turns out that was just lust.
with me, he’s found his perfect ratio
as have i in him.
one cannot love on a whim
for lust is much easier to fall into
than true, deep love.
Thank you for taking a read! On my page, i tend to share other writers’ poetry and add my insight to it. Now, i finally feel ready to share some of my own writings with everyone on my blog. What do you think about this piece? Who are your favorite poets/prose masters?
