It takes more than love to create lovers!


Sitting way up high in my balcony,
there's a view that no one else can see but me.
The view of intimacy.
As couples stroll through the streets
heartlessly,
it's perceived that they're earnestly in love.
With no strings attached they tightly embrace each other,
as they continue this long journey
of love with no transparency.
It takes more than love to create lovers!
Can you determine who's really in love,
when every member of a partner is attracted to another,
then say to each other that they're truly in love?
Pause! What about those that are faithful, honest and speak from their heart?
What about those that would put their life in jeopardy to protect her;
or tell him that he means the world to them?
O, that's just the marrying type i reckon,
and I'm way to young to get married.
How stereotype are we,
misjudging those who are sincere,
and wasting precious time loving those who just don't care?
'Love don't cost a thing' is what we imply
after we've been broken hearted
and shoveled like the dust in a graveyard.
O! Can he sustain a family? Is he capable of financing me? What about the bills?
Is it not that love defines responsibility, devotion, protection and confidentiality?
Supposingly, this is what's meant when a guy says 'I love you'!
Conversely, love has lost its savor in a culture that demise every good prospect.
Lovers now see relationships as a norm
and as a mean to exploit the benefits it projects.
Hence, when we fall short we become each other scapegoats laying deep in the pasture of regret.
Love should be the concluding factor.
It's biblical, dynamic and applicable.
Every lover in pursuit for happiness should set their basis on 'I love you! ' and not; what can you offer?
Does it takes more than love to create lovers?

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
