Love Is….

This poem was written in response to a situation where a potential love interest of a friend of mine accused her of having romantic feelings for me because we love each other.  My friend was trying to get him to understand that our love is deep and strong – but then he accused us of sleeping together, and accused her of lying when she said we had never done so.  He was furious – saying that love as deep as ours is supposed to be could never be that deep and that strong without sex being involved.  I sat at my computer and this was my response…

Love Is…

Love is…

More than hips undulating to passionate beat

Of frenzied hearts caught in

Blazing excitement,

More than lips fused together –

joining emotion at junction

of interlocking tongues

wrestling for dominance

to see which one



Love is…

More than the moans between

Two lovers rising from

Heaving breasts

Glistening chests

Rising from murmurs

To orgiastic screams


More than two bodies merged

Into one flesh

As man cleaves and melds into

Mate joining in the ultimate

Implosion of emotion

Melting nuclear

Reaction of

Passion ….

Love is

Hearts constructed from same mould –

Ice melts water rises into vapour

Same substance

Different forms

Souls connected across eternity, time

Warps into meaningless void

Infinity is as single day

Hearts beat with same rhythm

Drumming out

Love’s sensations…


Love’s un-breaking cord joins hearts –

Permanently fusing duelling organs

Into one new sentient


With feeling …

Now joined…

No longer two separate

But one ultimate

  1. Indeed love is more than this…. it takes a lot of hard work and everyday commitment. Enjoyed your take on this specially the hearts beating in rhythm (yes, I am romantic)

    Happy hearts day ~

  2. Infinity is as single day…

    That sums it all up for me. Fine thoughts and words.
