Love is like


Love is like a fire that burns out of control.

Love is a thing which makes us whole.


Love is a yearning,/ a wish to be joined.

Love is a two headed coin.


Love makes the whole world go round.

Yet love makes Nay, not a sound.


Love can barely be described, nor can it be tamed.

Love cannot be captured, nor named.


Love just seems to be that something which makes us ‘feel.’

Indeed love may be the only thing in this whole universe

that we can count on ‘as materially real.’
