Love in 10 Sentences


Love loop poem

Let me start out by saying I cheated. The challenge I received from A Blind Bird was to write a poem about love in 10 sentences. Each sentence is suppose to contain the word ‘love’ and have only four words in each sentence – Oops. Actually, I hadn’t noticed that I was suppose to do that, and I had finished this by the time I realized it. I’m also suppose to include a favourite quote about love and challenge ten other bloggers.

Quote: ““Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” –C.S. Lewis

I chose this quote because of the way so people now-a-day view love – as a feeling, emotion, passion, etc. So longing one has the ‘feeling’ of love, one is ‘in love’. Once the feeling of love is gone, the relationship is discarded. Whether others are hurt or not.

Love is such a vague word actually. If you would like to read further thoughts of mine on love, and its meanings, you can do so here, here, here, here and here.

Ok, now for my nominations:
