Eros...

Posted in:
I have shared this poem before but in honor of the season and my newer readers, enjoy...

Is this love?
When the heart beats faster
And the eyes are bright
When the laughter rings out
And the smile shines forth
When the cheeks are rosy red
And the skin all flushed
When the arms feel restless
And the limbs tremble and quiver

To feel weak and yet so strong
To know nothing and yet know all
To feel doomed and yet so blessed
To feel small and yet so big
To feel hungry and yet so full
To feel sad and yet so glad
To feel poor and yet so rich
To give and yet receive
Is this love?

************************************

ps, the title of the series shall be Cupid's Risk as suggested by Beautiful. That shall be used going forward. Thank you all for voting.

  1. Love is beautiful
    now many things describe
    through the eyes of different people
    but none as apt as
    1 cor 13
    love is patient, love is kind, love never fails.
    Beautiful

    If God loves you;
    any other kind is only
    a matter of time.

  5. yep thats probably love, most confusing feeling in the world, cos it takes all kinds of feelings and sticks it in one tiny place.

  6. Good day, sun shines!
    There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
    I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
    Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real income.
    It's all about how to select a correct partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

    You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

    nyway, the poem is REALLY nice but methinks this love thing ehn, it has k-leg cos wat one feels is not wat the other feels so how can u conclusively say that different reactions to a particular thing is love? my chemistry knowledge from secondary school taught me that the all the reactions for a particular substance are unique to that substance alone but with love...tut tut, me cannot say o...

  13. It's beautiful - the conflicts you describe and the simplicity you employ. I particularly identify with "When the arms feel restless". That is a true feeling.

  15. Love is the greatest phenomenom that sometimes surpasses all manner of explanation. It is beyond this realm . . . it’s more of a spiritual thing so many of us have yet to understand or fathom but still when it happens, you feel it however indescribable it may seem.

  17. HERES MY DEFINITION

    Love ....
    Tis defined by d moments we share
    Like the swirlin of the wind
    And the awakenin of the day
    Tis fresh and cannot be quantified
    tis wholesome yet fractioned
    Tis tearful yet cheerful...

    Love
    tis d stacatto to ur stilettos
    Offering its pleasures in little bursts
    shhhh there may be silences
    But making up is filled with brilliance

    TO MY DARLIN GUS' VAL 2010
