Crushing Or Loving - Poem by JenOfPoetry METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING
CRUSHING OR LOVING
A crush and being in love are similar in some ways but very much different.
Both give a feeling of belonging.
Crushing on the person you're feeling brands your heart beat.
Thinking about that person day in day out,
A day without at least speaking with them is painful.
Butterflies swarming your belly every time you are together.
Feels good don't it?
The difference lay in the perception of the relation.
You anticipate the moment in time and not looking any further down the line.
Not one time does a future come into mind; you just loving the now.
Making memories of every moment encountered.
You worry about the welfare and stability of every situation.
Caring gestures become a natural display.
All emotions get mixed up because you see a future with this person.
The present moment is only the beginning of what can be.
You hold that thought so tight that letting go will mean
You lose everything.
The love of being in love.
Know & consider the current status
Whether a crush or being love is a factor
Are you with them because they make you feel good at the moment?
Are you with them because they fill the void that is your future?
