Love Is Lust, Lust is Love?


”To Those Who Don't Know the Difference”

Interpretation that's the name,
Is love lust, or is it the same.
Love is from the heart,
this I believe is true.
Lust is only desire,
that is always misconstrued.

Love to me is a emotional thing,
that only one can feel,
lust is not the binding factor,
that confirms your love is real.

Lust is desire, in a physical sense,
this I believe is so true,
Lust is not the same as love,
is all I'm saying to you.

So which emotion do you feel,
is it love or lust my friend,
It's important to tell the difference,
Or relationships will eventually end.

If you love her….tell her so,
this I beg of you,
Or If it’s lust your after,
let her know it, try to be true.

She'll respect you a lot better,
If you tell her, make it clear.
Give her the respect she deserves,
at least friendship will be dear.

One thing I have eventually learned,
in this ripe ole' age of mine,
Sex is not what makes a relationship,
But love, faith and honesty, it's divine!

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