baby don't hurt me, no more

love is undefinable, complex and riddled with emotion.

 

love will never be an act of violence;

love will never be painful, cruel, and derogatory.

love will never be sweaters to hide the bruises and nonconsensual acts toward another.

love will never make you complacent, acquiescent of unacceptable monstrosities.

love will never feel shameful and wrong; nor will love be a crime.

 

love is undefinable, complex and riddled with emotion.

 

love should be patient and humble.

love should be welcoming, warm, and familiar.

love should be kind.

love should be freeing and a facet of who you are;

love should not define you, but it should shape you.

 

love is undefinable, complex and riddled with emotion.

Our world
