Comments about Of Love And Lust by Sandra Feldman

    You have written a Poem at the Cross-Roads, because both Love and Lust involve Sex. There is no ambiguity in your response: You choose and direct your reader down the Path of Love, and while walking this path, he or she will find and and incorporate Passion in the experience of Love. Meanwhile, those who took the other path will encounter either satiety or emptiness, but no passionate fulfillment. By the way, I admire the economy of your poems. You trust your carefully chosen words to carry your meaning and they do!

    Love is a meandering river, flowing on its own, through twists and turns.
    Lust is a sudden tidal bore, that sometimes overflows the river and disturbs its musical motion.

    People, especially men often mistake lust to be love! But there is a chasm between the two! Love endures where as lust perishes! Lust after its peak is like a deflated balloon where as love is like an unexhausted spring! Lust is agressive and love so calm, peaceful and tranquil! Love is the song of life that will continue to delight and soothe life! Very meaningful write, Sandra!
