Don’t confuse love with lust!

Don’t confuse love with lust!

A Poem by COLLYMORE

Self-explanatory

By Stanley Collymore

 

Genuine love is much more than simply mouthing

cliched words of encouragement at will that in

themselves have no obvious or convincing

meaning; uttering hackneyed phrases

unswervingly; or else expressing

mundane sentiments with no

detailed intention of their

pragmatic fulfilment.

 

For unlike such uncorroborated statements

that entirely have nothing in common

with what love is really all about,

love actually entails full commitment to

the person, as well as the ideals that

the individual in question is truly

interested in, and not spurious

unachievable substitutions!

 

And if you either cannot or will not seriously,

candidly and honestly entertain binding

yourself to what you’re otherwise

facilely and habitually in such

counterfeit cases are intentionally and

misleadingly promoting, then call

whatever it is you’re doing or

else fixatedly enamoured

of by a changed name;

but please do refrain

from thoughtfully

labelling it love!

Author’s Remarks:

Lust when consensually and quite legally indulged in has its rightful place in every society that genuinely labels itself democratic. That said please, whatever you do, don’t ever confuse lustful emotions, their lascivious actions or outright carnal activities with the unpretentious and indisputable genuine sentiments of love.
