Passion motivated
And passion executed,
Love’s requirements
But abstinence defied,
The love of lust and
The disregard of love,
The bestial creed
Of the hungry predator,
The circumvention
Of affection
For the sake of pleasure,
The final phase of love
Before the dawning,
The disregard of the rules
As love longs for love
To be prolonged,
For it to sink into
Each other’s hearts
If not in a day
But arriving
With the seasons,
Not into
Each other’s keeping
But letting freedom
Lay down the rules
And control the feelings
Acquired through abstinence.

Yes. We can't disrupt the natural the flow of love.

It’s vital that we all stay in touch literally and figuratively with someone we truly love. We all came out from a cocoon of love nourished by our mother and our family from outside the womb. And we carry this longing for love all our lives, to touch and be touched, to procreate to extend the love evermore.

Thanks Robert. Like.
