TO ME LOVE Is⚜️⚜️
Love is a reality that pervades the universe
Like an unguent on frayed nerves
A factor unifying even contrary forces
Love binds the like-minded, the love-loving.
It is the queen of all emotions, situations
It is a quality, a characteristic, a feature
A simile, a metaphor, an adjective.
Like an infant on its mother’s bosom
A father figure for the frightened and unsafe
A nook where one can find shelter
From the fierce elements of the mind.
A path that takes you in the right direction
You aren’t surprised when you gain your goal
Love is local, topical, general, universal
All at the same time, and makes it special
Love keeps the balance of good and evil
In favor of the good and never the evil.
Love is not limited to the romantic love
The boy-meets-girl–fall-in-love kind of love
For love is many things besides
For me love is just love, period.
This is because…
To a person who understands what love is
To one who is immersed in all its avatars
Essentially, truly, literally, metaphorically
Hatred is a veritable impossibility.
