    where is love
    how long does it last
    is it only an ingredient for truth
    or a plate at the table of a simple, inviting experience
    did i find it in her, that and it too??
    i did. now it's gone
    what took it from me??
    if it were destiny i didn't know she was a thief,
    rather kind or not...
    most of my life has been directed by my own will
    and not far less by the will of others
    of others?? you name it.. places, things, people who can say you're hired
    or you're fired- all of these determinants of your next direction...

    l don't know what led me to you, my queen of my life,
    i didn't see love coming to me along these spiraling patterns in my life...
    lf it was truth, l believe in it
    lf it was destiny, l now believe in possibilities
    lf it was time, l no longer believe or think it is aimless
    but since is was love, i now know where all these entities have tried to bring me for so long and that's to you
    and love will be with me whereever l go and when l am gone..

    Very Nice Flow

    I like this flow because after being led around by all the determinants. The truth was discovered and in you poet will live forever. You pinned it well.

    I liked that love is
    In all it's complexity. The focus is to recall just that. No guarantees, no returns. But you must make the deposit or never experience it.

    Keep sharing.
