Love Comforts A Soul Or Destroys It

Love Comforts A Soul Or Destroys It

A Poem by Barbara Kasey Smith

Love is immortal and nothing can destroy it!

Love splits in directions,
leaves a lover guessing about a relationship.
Love comforts when a mate hurts,
nurtures at a time of sadness, illness and hurts.
Love tortures a soul and drains a mind,
triggers a heart to fill warmth and isolation.

Love stings when it isn't right,
instigates jealousy, doubt, turmoil, and insecurity.
Love wiles the mind and rejects affections.
Love satisfies an urge and a need,
grants relief and satisfaction.
Love is testing and tempting in spite of spirits.

Love aches for an embrace, a moment, a word, a kiss,
satisfying their importance in their mate's life.
Love is hearing their mate's voice,
saying, "I love you" and mean it.
Love is assuring, stability, respect, security, expressive,
knows a mate will not abandon or stop loving them.

Love is a lifetime of caring, respecting and adoring a mate,
expressions of kindness, compatibility, loyality, ownership and responsibility.
Love never wavers or becomes mundane or monotonous;
it grows in time to become a strong deep-seeded bond.
It won't deteriorate, break, depart, tarnish or die in time.
Love is simply love and no-one can destroy its stance and strength.
