Defining Love

Defining Love

Is love complete forgiveness
Compromising one’s self esteem?
Or a two-way street where
accountability is something to redeem
 
A voice in need to be heard
Stubborn and so sure
Love is deeply embedded
But not in the light always so pure
 
Is love official as written
in documents ratified?
Surely actions are louder
than words spoken and justified
 
Love is not an official object
or a pawn played in a game
Love is ethereal, intangible
Like the air and there is no blame

    You summed it up perfectly in your last two lines Christine….
