What Love is Not...

 

What is love?

Well I can tell you what love is not

 

Love is NOT just sex

Love is NOT silence

Love is NOT mistreatment

Love is NOT harrasment

Love is NOT hatred

Love is NOT obsession

Love is NOT likeness

Love is NOT uncareness

Love is NOT rudeness

Love is NOT fake kisses

Love is NOT what dismisses

Love is NOT hearing

Love is NOT fearing

Love is NOT one sided hugs

Love is NOT unhealthy bugs

Love is NOT impatience

Love is NOT confrontation

Love is NOT taken for granted

Love is NOT all romantic

Love is NOT one sided

Love is NOT about touch

Love is NOT lies

Love is NOT pride

 

So I've told you what love is not

So for every not, take the opposite of it

and you've got what I call

Love

But if you don't have it all

then its just a relationship waiting to fall.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
