Lust? Or Love?


Some say they believe in
love at first sight…
I scoff at those who see the
truth in this.

Love is an acquired thing,
you can't love someone you just
laid your eyes upon.

Lust, on the other hand is an
instantaneous thing,
an almost life threatening thing.

Lust causes babies and disease,
It is hard to tell the difference
Between the two…Love? Or lust?

That is something you will know when it happens,
Love doesn’t come easily, Lust does.

    I totally agree with you on this one. I believe that the majority of problems in society arise from our urgent need to feel loved, when in fact we achieve the adverse affect. Very well contemplated. Love you :) (Report) Reply

    Love hurts like hell I guess and makes u happy and lust gives a thrill but how to separate the two I dont know guess feelings are hard to distinguish on times. but there are also different forms of love - love of a friend a parent as well as partner - feelings are so difficult to separate on times

    Well written

Far south the lift,
