love is not the thought, the deed
love is not in our minds
love is not bound by restrictions and rules
love is not to be shaped, so it may fit one’s beliefs and wishes
love is not to be forced or pretended
love is not money spent
love is not measured in time
love is the blood, rushing through our veins
it is the fuel in us,
driving us to unthinkable heights
or devastating lows.
you cannot deny love,
for it is the essence
no matter how hard you try.
