    This is how it flows
    when a relationship grows
    and isn't sure which
    way the wind blows
    The flow's beats are thready
    the tempo is unsteady
    and not quite ready
    to simply...flow
    This is how it flows
    when the heart knows
    that love exists, but the mind
    sees how the seesaw goes
    back and forth, forth and back,
    but not quite full speed ahead
    moments filled with both unbridled
    passion and a creeping dread
    at the same time
    it goes beyond reason
    and way past rhyme
    Did love chose us
    or did we chose love
    and is this the way to cherish
    that which was sent from above?
    flowing
    within this neighborhood
    of make believe,
    throwing
    all caution to the wind
    those gusts trying to send
    illuminating visions
    as we both try to comprehend
    that we both desire the same...
    the trust of a tried and true friend
    and a commitment that won't
    come to an abrupt end,
    again...

    this is how it flows....

    re:Flows

    Watz, we cannot choose who we love . It is just something that happens.
    This is a powerful Excellent write.

    Yes it just happens it seems Poetrymama. Thank you for your kind words.
    Yes, love just...is. And just when you least expect it, it appears, with apparently no rhyme or reason. Thank you Rich for your response, and Mzblkangel for seconding that emotion.

    Very good and interesting question...
    I somehow love the song: "love don't love nobody" ...yet we love, love is strange, but be that as it may...I too think that "love is...it just is

    I feel, "If you found your true inner love, ...outside the realm is bliss."
    Beautiful piece and much food for thought, thanks

    I suppose...love has a rhyme or reason all its own, and it's up to each person to make some sense of it, but not to lose any sleep trying to make perfect sense of it. I agree with what you say about finding your inner love. I like your responses queent. Thank you sis.
