Love's Definition

Ah me! LOVE
Is a sensitive,
And such
A delicate being;
It is a flower
In need for a shower
Of many a thing:
Words and care,
Not only gazing;
Though gazing
Is so glowing
And nourishing
But it is only so
In the very beginning.

Love is a rare lilac
That needs careful
Occasional watering,
It is a red dewy rose,
Whose petal
You can't nail,
But certainly touch
Love is a playful cuddly
Fluffy kitten;
She loves kissing and hugging,
Love needs dialogue
Not argument,
Love is clarity;
It is not a game of power,
Or exchanging hints,
The winner is the loosing one
For love can not live
If one is always initiative
And the other in the receiving end;
One acts and the other
Reacts to what he gets,
The one who speaks
Will go dumb
In the long run.

Love needs constant
Nourishment for
Its soul, heart,
Mind and Flesh,
Needs genuine care;
Everlasting attendance,
Love is taking and giving;
It just can't go on living
Single handed;
It can never live
When one side is giving
And the other is welling
To only take;

Nurture it with
Knowledge which
The mind needs;
With passion for
The heart sphere,
Elevate the human
Spirit and nourish
Love's soul with
Spiritual words
And deeds,
So that it could
Reach its peak
In the last step;
Full and flesh fulfillment
Love is: action
What is love,
If action is not to be;
Practical deeds,
Not only words?
Though words in Love
Feeding and supportive

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
