What is Truth

What is Truth

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

True love seeks not itself to please as it fears no loss of station Creating ease, with every breeze Heaven grows to Hell's frustration

"


 

Laying my eyes on you at last

sweet beauty no way to measure

Expecting nothing more of us

than to give joy to the pleasure

 

False love seeks not to please

laughing at another in delight

Joys in the tease, and loss of ease

creating Hell in Heavens respite

 

True love seeks not itself to please

as it fears no loss of station

Creating ease, with every breeze

Heaven grows to Hell's frustration

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
It isn't so hard to understand the differences in love and usury.
One is selfish the other selfless.

Thank you Willard So nice to hear .
Always a pleasure to review your work Tate. You always project tenderness and caring.
Love the way you used the photo of you both as a back drop to portray a love with open honesty.
False love seeks not to please, laughing at another in delight etc.
I love that verse. They say that love is in the eyes of the beholder.
Thank goodness for that. That way we may all experience that beautiful or sometimes heartache state. Thank you Tate.

True love alters things that we deem impossible. And eases our burden to remember to remember. We don't use honest Love, it uses us........Lovely, thank you...Barbz

You're welcome.
There is a selflessness to love that is hard to grasp when we are young, and becomes easier as time passes.

Nice one, Tate. That juxtaposition of Heaven and Hell is almost eighteenth century in it sentiments. And a great pic of you two.

superlative Tate...truly emotional and heartfelt
wonderful picture...terrific song...and Tate
a masterpiece of a write
I do not throw those words around lightly...tears came to my eyes ... and remain
I loved the way you set the mood, climaxed in the third stanza (which by the way is as good a four lines as I've read) and finally settled into heavenly love (what's better then that?).
Thanks for sharing
