Contemplations on Love
My realizations as I trail along its meandering course
When the skin wrinkles,
the eyesight dims and
the mind slows down,
To love then has and will always be a choice.
When in Love
your love for someone
does not depend on their love for you.
Our Capacity to Love
After a series of heartbreaks and failed relationships,
I realize that every time your heart breaks,
it grows into a size bigger when it heals.
Enabling you to hold more love and capable of giving more.
So the purpose of a broken heart is to simply test the limits of how much
your heart can expand and your capacity to love.
How to Love
Be there and hold ground like a rock,
Caress and soothe like a river,
Energize like the sun and
Set them free like the wind.
Love is like the air- light, helps us stay alive and needs to move constantly.
Just like how the air in a closed room feels stale and suffocating,
the love between two people who hold on and cling to each other turns sour.
Then, one must open the doors and windows, to love anew.
