They who live by thrills alone
Move from one lover to another.
When a new love is
The only way to find love,
Love is only in the thrill.
Satisfaction is in the
Keeping of that feeling
Only through the
Fascination of
Something new.
True love is in the
Need for permanence
In order to find ways
To make love grow,
And it becomes fascinated
By each way it finds.
Traveling hearts
Just keep on traveling
For the thrill of it.

Indeed, some people are more in love with the euphoric feeling of being in love, but the true prize is the loving bond that lasts decades :-)

Glad to hear from you Olga. It is hard to keep the thrill of love after years of marriage. There must be something in it that keeps it secure in the heart

@Robert: Yes, as years go by, the thrill and excitement of the first dates is gone, but is replaced with the enveloping feeling of comfort and security. I think being able to be silly together will keep a marriage from going stale. But the real glue is kisses and snuggles :-) That's my personal experience.

Reminds me of a few happy times. Kiss and goodnight. Happy together.
And moved on. Young at heart, sweet innocent love, a lot of thrill in discovering one another, a fascination.
Thanks Robert . Like.
