What is Love

What is Love

A Poem by Richard McLin
"

Do you know what Love is?

"

Love

Does it have a definition
There is a word called love in the dictionary
but that's a definition in words
Is that really what love is?

Sex

A beautiful act
Joining of two bodies in the throes of passion
The method of sharing their love
Is that really what love is?

Marriage

A bonding of two
People wishing to be together forever
The rings showing the connection they share
Is that really what love is?

Love

Does it have a definition
Yes it does
Love is what you feel, know, and taste
Love is love, and that is all

Love is ever changing, in the now, but also lingers forever when its strong enough- This is a great poem- a wonderful thought to ponder. I believe love is definable to each individual person : )

I agree.....for so many variations of love, love without sex, or marriage, can be the most pure, and the most selfless, a parent, etc..........but love cannot be measured, contained or explained, it just is.

Marriage

The rings showing the connection they share
Is that really what love is?

i love this part But very beautiful yes i agree Many meanings to love it isnt just a word But Sex isnt any thing with out love you have to feel love to have that with them.

Yes.
And as Neil Young sings,
"Love and only love will
break it down."

(What would Morty have to say about this piece?)

I am truly a dissipated voluptuary. At this age after
26 girlfriends and 4 wives. However optimistic!
But I have grown so isolated that when a female
occasion arises, I gravitate towards friendship
and will not pursue romance. I would have to be pursued.
My best, (I think I'll blog this just to annoy folks.)

Love can be many things on many levels.. but yes I believe you do know it when it hits.. trouble is lining it up with another in sequence in somewhat of a balance. Marriage is being used more and more as a means of security.. more than love.. see it all the time. You can feel it but can not touch it.. at least not the power of love itself.. It can move mountains.. start and end wars.. a very powerful thing in all our time.

One thing we do need in life at some point is Love.. it can't be denied.. you have a great run down of what defines these powerful words to you.. for as much as you can write about it.. for there are not enough words to define love in the written form.. it means so much to everyone.. our world really. Love has been sung about and makes the world go round.. Great job!
