Love is an elusive word for me

Love is an elusive word for me

A Poem by Suchita

Love or lust-aptly said


Love is an elusive word for me

I wish I had a lover
No don’t get me wrong
Not for sex
But for love alone

I wish I knew what love is
Between man n woman
Not something just superficial
But real

So far it’s been liking
Not loving 
Not loving
Protection, possession, etc
Hope you get what I mean

Love is far more inclusive
Than liking
I feel it
For family a bit
But that’s altruistic love
Not eros 
That exists between lovers

I wonder why I haven’t met love so far
Though it exists
In my experience n vocabulary

I wish for my soul mate
Then I won’t be desperate
For love n longing
Soul’s belonging
