Dissecting Love

Love is about concessions

Not about empty confessions.

Love is about a mutual respect

Not about reading the other's texts.

 

-Love is patient-

 

Love is not an excuse

Not a reason for abuse.

Love is not manipulitave 

Not words that are repetitive.

 

-Love is kind-

 

Love is healing

Not devoid of feeling.

Love is dying to one's self

Not shoving your partner's concerns on a shelf.

 

-Love does not boast-

 

Love is life.

Two lives intertwined.

Love is death.

Love is life.

Our world
