Love - Poem by Cathryn Martin

In the English language,
We have just one word for love,
But there are many more,

They all have different meanings,
Bu all work out the same,
Love for one another is just like a flame.

A weak flame is Storge,
And weakening it is too,
It accepts and puts up with,
Destroying soul and mind.

Philia is a stronger flame,
But still it flickers out,
A general love, tween friends,
It can't survive alone.

Agape means 'I love you',
A stronger flame still,
This is a bonfire,
Large but contained.

The biggest flame of all,
Is like a forest fire,
All consuming,
Lighting all in it's path.

This form of love,
Can be seen by everyone,
Touching peoples hearts,
Giving off little sparks.

These sparks land on tinder,
Which bursts, spreading all around,
Hurray here it comes,
The famous Eros Flame.
