    Simple as it may seem,
    love, and the act of loving,
    can be very complicated things,
    bringing their contributors heartaches, and headaches,
    and multiple nights alone,
    contemplating arguments
    and other miscommunications,
    digesting yet another sad love song,
    don’t get me wrong,
    love is life’s most vital ingredient,
    if it wasn’t
    we wouldn’t be constantly needing it,
    wouldn’t strive for it,
    thrive for it,
    yearn, and burn, become over concerned,
    and sometimes
    drive ourselves into isolation for it,
    mind-manipulating through a
    myriad of misconceptions
    over why we didn’t add up
    to their sought out summations
    and gain their highest acceptance,

    why do fools fall in love?
    mainly, because love sustains,
    it supplies
    an unending throng of days
    where the limit is the skies
    laced with layers of affection,
    a blanket of protection,
    and the one thing we long for
    that flourishing connection
    that’s impenetrable,
    immoveable,
    unbreakable,
    it’s intact through the cruelest of weather
    and it assiduously states
    that you’re surviving together

    but nobody said it’d be easy,
    some nights, you’re not speaking,
    and you feel like you have trouble breathing,
    cause your air supply is missing and
    it leaves you thinking
    that
    the world has crashed down on you,
    claiming your bond with
    the one thing you care about in
    this world most
    (and what surprises you,
    is that this isn’t you,
    like not so long ago,
    it used to be)
    and there’s pain, and trials,
    but you persevere,
    cause true love is worth saving,
    and you disregard fear,
    and reclaim hold
    over the joyous being
    that solely comforts your soul,
    clinging boldly to forever,
    how long is that?
    neither of you knows,
    but you do know that
    there’s good, and there’s bad,
    near heavenly, and sad,
    but you’re in,
    until the end,
    cause that just the way that love goes

    just the way love goes .... sometimes all the things u purpose
    out of darkness the light arose
    and love is what we chose
    ultimately you would find the friends or foes
    just the way love goes.....
    and when would this surface and show
    shouldn't they just know
    when i feel aloof
    and that shelter requires a roof
    somethings are not subjected to magic
    if i'm late it is not tragic
    just the way love goes ......
    life has it's high's and low's
    in fertile soil love grows
    symmetry of love is not always rows
    sporadically it may glow
    just the way love goes ....
