so simple

so simple

A Poem by manchilld99
"

the poet said, "...let's make a deal and keep it real..."

"

 

this could be so simple

i almost forget as i try to figure

the wherefore and how

of a thing that just is

 

 

whereupon instead of

sorting out the conundrum

i'd be wiser then losing the trail

and just finding the mark

 

 

for a thing that just is

sets apart from explanation

may be beyond understanding

yet stands unerringly certain

 

 

eyes meet and flicker

like the passion-wrought flames

in our kiss and we just know

mystical but doubtless ... love is.

oh....this is precious, you hit it! "Why do I love thee, let me count the ways"....but someone else can have these exact qualities and does not have our heart...or someone can have all the qualities we are looking for, and we like them a lot, but no chemistry. i think love is a combination of chemistry,comparable values and goals, and the right timing. The last factor is huge.
This is really sweet and so simple it is profound. Just enjoy the love, it doesn't need to be dissected and analyzed to be savoured.
