True Love


True Love

Love is such a tainted word
That often I find absurd
Though I know the feeling well
Resonating a blissful hell

Love is a cancer and cure
It’s only truly pure
Between a parent and their offspring
Not between a finger and a ring

Friction between skin
Does not equal kin
For one can easily toss aside
Another who’s blood differs inside

A choice between spouse or child
should be bias never wild
For your kid will lie and break your heart
Though your connection will never part

As relationships will stumble
Put under stress they tend to crumble.
Few find true passion
An honest form of satisfaction

That wont give in when things get rough
Who do not say “I’ve had enough.”
We wonder why so many can’t find love
For we all have forgotten it like a glove

Love is pain, it is not all pleasure
Rough patches will happen all with different measure
To give up and walk away is easier then trying to mend
Sad one would rather give up then ever try to attend

A child will always be part of your story
For they are part of you and your glory
But a companion is chosen so you can forget
What first brought you together and how you met

If you truly love someone try to work it out
Just don’t stand there and consistently shout
Love like everything has a good and bad side
But when you have it, true hope does reside.

One response to “True Love

  • Gayle Whitsitt

    Yes, Shoeless, I can totally relate to this. And the imagery of
    “We wonder why so many can’t find love
    For we all have forgotten it like a glove”
    is the best thing I have read in 20 years.
