Love Is Just A Game

Love Is Just A Game

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

Love lasts, 
Does it? 

Cheat on 
Would you still? 

Betray trusts 
Won't you? 

Leave 'em alone 
Those who love you 
Wouldn't you? 

This is how it works 
Doesn't it? 

Those who love 
Should be taught this lesson 
Will you? 

Coz love 
Is just a game 
We play 
To quench 
Our insatiable thirsts 
Don't we?

I feel it disappears more than it appears from beneath the sand...
There is a fierce pulse that breathes through your words, a vision, a canvas of love tainted in painful streaks and scars. It is an aching glimpse of what happens to love when it hides from its true self. The rhythmic questions of your thoughts just stun the senses.

Thank you so much, Craig for the appreciation. I am much humbled by your kind words. 😊
Love can be merely a tool to play with our hearts, though, when blossomed in honesty and beauty, love can be one of the greatest things that keeps two people together, whether romantically or not. Then again, I've never experienced true love and I'm not sure how that will go in the future... XD I don't have much of a stand to speak positive on it, but the reality of love can often be cruel, forcing people to never feel the emotion again. I've met someone who had been through heartbreak over 20 times and she never let their names escape her mind. It just... Ate away at her. I was a young teen back then, so I hardly understood... Until I got older and realized how destructive we can make love. If it's in the rights hands, love can be such a beautiful thing. Anyways, well done on this!

Well, Yumna,
You've certainly skillfully, emotionally, and with great passion, addressed one aspect of love … the game portion, and "Yes, love can all too often be a hurtful game."
In my experiences, and there have been literally hundreds over my years of searching and trying, lured by and entered into with hope, lust, you name it … for, there is no end to that which is entered into and undertaken in the name of "love".
There is one thing I know for certain, Yumna, "The heart has a mind all its own, that no one can tell it how to feel, whom to chose and feel it with, how long it will last, and in whatever form it will appear when it does, etc; on and on.
One may fall in-love by virtue of a plan, it may develop bit-by-bit over time, hit us when least expected, sparked in a rush of fiery, irresistible lust … love and its various forms is literally endless.
It may even brim the heart to overflowing with tears of sweetness from looking into the eyes of an infant or innocent child, or the or those of one's lover after sated love-making, or while watching the playful sweetness of a kitten, etc; there just is no end to love and its effects on the heart, mind, spirit, and emotions.
So many questions you've asked, so much is written between your lines, and so many of us will relate to the brilliant discourse of your deeply meaningful words … such unfortunate hurt I can feel emanating from them the pain is almost palpable, but such is the power of well-struck poetry upon my sensitive soul.
Perhaps, this poem I once wrote on love, not so long ago, will express something about it we all might be able to agree on.

Thank you, Dear Yumna, for blessing us with another of your amazingly captivating pieces! ⁓ Richard

"LOVE"
(to all seekers)

LOVE,
shall seek not....
but for its own satisfaction
and will not be easily swayed
from its course.

It will....
bend and twist you
and shine and dim upon you
while holding onto those within its grip.

Until....
they become pliant and giving
trusting and alive
with its genuine and crystal-clear vision.

It will know you....
even though
you do not know yourself
and until you do.

It cannot....
be captured
and will not be controlled
by anything other than love itself.

It shall not....
be fooled
nor can it be substituted
or replaced.

For....
Love is sufficient unto Love
and can be known only
to itself.

Nothing known can destroy genuine Love.

Love....
will warmly embrace you
but only upon finding you worthy
to its demanding task.

Until that occasion....
you will ever be seekers
of this lustrous gem we call –

"LOVE"

"There is no single answer to the question of what love really is,
but this I have found it is to me – perhaps, now to you, eh?"

It maybe for some... but it may start as a game... then it'll develop as love. Emotions may come out cheap but the experiences that you receive and given either you recognized it or not it is always be there. It maybe a game.. or it maybe not.

Yes indeed! Thank you for the nice review, Starzy! I really appreciate it ☺
Love as a game - while it has been done to death it always comes back to that because perhaps we learned games as children and are still children/rank amateurs in this game.
I was minded of the great furore sparked by the world's greatest A.I. machine lately because it beat the world champion at the uber-compicated game 'GO'.
The same computer would literally blow a gasket if it ever tried to play the game of 'LOVE' - don't you think YumnaKay
Great piece for making the reader think.

Aloha,

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment on my work.

I agree with Perdition with respect to love.

Reading though this piece appears to me that the persona has been hurt by what she thought was real love, only to find out it was anything but....

Not everyone that says, 'I love you' means it the way you may perceive it and therein lies the problem...perception... intention...reaction... rejection...

Wishing you well.
