Love And Lust Poem by Jazib Kamalvi

Love And Lust

Rating: 4.3

Love and lust are poles apart.

Lust is chaos, love is art.

Love infinite, lust is finite.

Love is sustained, lust is short.

Love is spiritual, lust is physical.

Love is ideal, lust is sensual.

Love is selfless, lust is selfish

Love immortal, lust is mortal.

Love is productive, lust is destructive.

Love is optional, lust is impulsive.

Love is energetic, lust is crazy.

Love is humanist, lust instinctive.

Lust is rabid dog, love is padagog.

Love demands inner beauty, lust demands appearance.

Lust starts from black holes of eyes, love from conscientious part of heart.

Love develops in brain, lust develops in gonads.

Lust stays on surface of the words, but love in depths of unconscious.

Love is rationally emotional, lust is emotionally rational.

Love is Allopath, lust is Psychopath.

Love is Homoeopath, lust is Sociopath.

Love kisses, lust disses.

Love honours, lust ravishes.

Love insight, lust is blind.

Lust devours, Love nourishes.

Love replays, lust betrays.

Love impresses, lust oppresses.

Love centralizes, lust strays.

Love expresses, lust depresses.

Love is healthy, lust is lame.

Lust is gambling, love is game.

Love is Platonic, lust is Bubonic.

Lust is shameless, love is shame.

Lust is volcano, love is rain.

Love is Abel, lust is Cain.

Prophets weep, Demons laugh.

Love is fruitful, lust is vain.

Love is need, lust is greed.

Lust is maniac, love is sane.

Lust is a beast, love is dove.

Lust is hatred, love is love

Lust is passion, love compassion.

Lust is beneath, love above.

Love is even climb, it is never lost.

Lust is a decline, it is ever lost.

Love is always true to the core but lust is hyperbole.

Love provides endless satisfaction, lust ends at opposite pole.

Love is the base of this universe,

Lust is baseless in itself.

My subject is my subject.

Such enveloping my subject.

Such as God to His universe.

Such as Devil to this universe.

Love is a sincerity and responsibility.

Lust is insincerity, irresponsibility.

Confirmation test is just,

sacrifice or obedience.

Both or only one is must.

Lust is aimless without love.

Love is aimful without lust.

My subject is thy subject.

My subject is love and lust.

I can tell you one secret.

Love and lust are poles apart.

But make union only when.

Lust is second, love is first.

Just, ask a victim of lust.

Love And Lust
All the cases of blackmailing, abuse, rape, incest, seduction, divorce and sexual slavery are the instances of the domination of lust.

I personally thin is a beautiful thing to have in a relationship, it means you are comfortable in your own body with your partner.

I can't speak from a male point of view, but the drive behind isn't always a selfish concept NOR does it make one evil either. As long as others aren't hurt in the process or affected. Lust doesn'tnecessarily depends on circumstance.

A flowery write and beautiful juxtaposition of both. If I may ask, what does these lines from the poem mean, 'My subject is my subject. Such enveloping my subject'? .
