Such is love

by Alanis   Aug 12, 2012

What is love?
A disease that spreads like wild
Fire? A desire too complex for
Us humans to understand?
Such is a wild flower, so
Beautiful, so exotic. But what
Happens when it wilts? Will
We still want it the same way
As when it was beautiful? When
It needs water are you prepared
To water it and treat it with care?
Such is love.

    This is beautiful indeed Chelsea. It does say a lot too. Love is such a beautiful thing like a flower as you said. But you do bring up a great point/question. Do we still love the person whether we are beautiful or have many problems? . I think the answer is is yes because your heart makes you. It's hard to fall in love as it is but falling out of love is even more difficult. I guess no one can really say what love it per say. We all have our own ideas in our head. The flower metaphor is perfect here though. A flower and love is very fragile already so you do have to treat it with care. This is still a very lovely write. 5
