'LOVE IS A FOUNTAIN'....inspired by Afzal Shauq's Poem 'BEGGING HEART' / Jessica R

Love is when
you keep coming back
to the overflowing fountain
of your lover because,
no matter how much
you come to him,
your thirst cannot
be quenched and
you constantly want
him more and more.

It is not to fulfill
your lustful needs;
that is not love.

This is why you
must keep the
water pure until
the well of commitment
has spilled over
into marriage.

When sex contaminates
the fresh spring,
the flow will forever
be tainted.

The stream will continue
but will never satisfy
like it would if you
took only small sips now
and waited to drink of his body
until the time is right.

However, you must
keep the sips limited
to moist kisses
because if you don’t,
they may lead
to hearty gulps
that can drown
your honorable intentions.

Inspired by: Afzal Shauq’s “Begging Heart” My beliefs are that sex and anything more than kissing should be avoided at all costs until marriage because sex complicates relationships and almost always leads to heartbreak.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
