Love Defined

Love Defined

A Poem by Betty

In colors vivid, either gloomy or bright,
In red, violet, yellow, or even in blue,
Has love been defined to not my heart, my soul but to my sight,
And I saw each hue, without an ounce of woe,
For it had my eyelids crease and I ceased to move,
And just sat loving the colors of love.
In weathers different Cold or warm
Has love been defined to the skin of my arm,
And I felt each brush of breeze without an ounce of fear,
For it bore no seething thunder, nor was it bitter,
For its touch was only kind, when in presence near,
Oh when love bears the features of summer, winter,
How I just sit wishing for it to only last forever.

"wishing for it to only last forever" nice paradox there.

i like your phrasing, and use of colors...even the dark ones are vivid in their own way...

love can be really joyful or painful...warm or cold, but in some ways it is something we can see besides feel.

The definition of love. This has always evaded me, but
now I can go out and love like the best of them , because
you have supplied the hue, perhaps the temperature and
most of all, the warm feeling that floods your mind and body
as you think of the one you love.
Thank you,

An idealistic take on a favourite subject. How sad that it doesn't always 'last forever'. Love seems to be an emotion specifically designed to perpetuate the race, but time wears it thin, and in the modern world, lived at such a frantic pace, so many distractions dilute it to either affection, or contempt. How else would we explain the divorce rate? But nice to be young and idealistic. A poem for the young at heart.
