    Trying to assess, define, explain
    this thing called love
    So difficult to explain the unexplainable
    to reach that which is unobtainable
    to touch in words alone, and yet
    it is this time of year we get
    the gumption, to try
    and so shall I
    It's that feeling where pins and needles
    and butterflies take refuge in one body part
    or another. Or perhaps it's thinking that we're
    quite capable of feeling faint, but not faint of heart.
    Yet our hearts are fragile, and emotions that we took for
    granted as having a handle on, are now out of hand.
    So much we'd sacrifice just to make this person happy, although
    just being in their presence makes us happy, ain't love grand?
    What more than likely started out as a friendship now
    yearns to be more. No longer will a peck on the cheek
    do. Now we long for that soulful, long, lingering kiss,
    leading to a bliss of eternity we prayerfully seek.
    And speaking of prayer, is this special someone indeed
    our Godsend? That complementary mate sent from above
    somehow. The yen to our yang, calling out to us like
    a moth to a flame, the passionate side of this...love.
    Similar tastes yes, but not the same, perfect in all their
    little quirky imperfections. Wanting to wring their necks
    and hug them at the same time, and laughing at the
    realization of this, this love, being so complex.
    The intricate feeling of being with someone even when the
    miles keep your bodies apart. It's amazing at what distances
    can and cannot do, for if the love is true it can withstand
    the many miles that come between smiles and instances
    of frenzied gratification of the flesh. But don't get me wrong,
    that physical passion pulsating through two souls that entwine,
    that making love....With the right person, it is the stuff that can
    illuminate every star in the sky. Just thinking of this, as we dine
    on this virtual feast of feelings
    of explanations
    of definitions
    of assessments
    Trying to explain the unexplainable
    grasping at that unobtainable
    definition of
    LOVE

    Love has it's way of crawling, creeping, sneaking in our hearts. But hey, who's fighting it? ...lol
    And yes, there's certain times that our love shines like sun. I really enjoyed this piece and can certainly idenify with it, thanks

    Thank you 1poet for letting me know you're loving the vibe, appreciated.
    Thank you much for your very kind compliment Keita.
    I guess all of us here have searched for words to explain what can't quite be explained, hence our love affair with poetry. Glad you loved this piece Sweet baby
    face.
    You humble me so phenomenal. Thank you for being so kind and supportive sista poet.
