Love Runneth Over (Poetry Block 44)

It’s overflowing.  Overflowing.  Overflowing.

And each time it is given.

It comes back.

 

It’s unconditional because it knows no limits.

And it is peaceful because it is understanding.

It’s overflowing.  Overflowing.  Overflowing.

 

It can be felt.

And it can also be received.

It’s unconditional because it is understanding.

 

From the smile.

To the laughter.

From the kiss.

To the hug.

From the smallest gesture.

To the biggest surprise.

 

It’s overflowing.  Overflowing.  Overflowing.

And each time it is given.

It comes back.

 

It’s unconditional because it knows no limits.

And it is peaceful because it is understanding.

It’s overflowing.  Overflowing.  Overflowing.

 

It can be felt.

And it can also be received.

It’s unconditional because it knows no limits.

 

It cannot be tamed.

And  it is never forced.

It is more than appreciated.

 

It does not falther.

And it allows for heartfelt purpose.

It cannot be tamed.

 

It serves as a stronghold.

And yet it is also free.

It does not falter.

 

From the moment it starts.

To the infinite end.

From the words spoken.

To the gentlest touch.

From the beautiful memories.

To the well spent time.

 

It cannot be tamed.

And it is never forced.

It is more than appreciated.

 

It does not falter.

And it allows for heartfelt purpose.

It cannot be tamed.

 

It serves as a stronghold.

And yet it is also free.

It does not falter.


 

Poet’s Thoughts:

While all of my poems are favorites, this one from the Love and All Its Condiments collection, is my ABSOLUTE favorite.  The way this poem describes our Love is absolutely perfect and on point.  While many will state this love is rare, my answer is at least you know it exists, rare as it might be.  I never thought somebody (outside of God) could love me 100%+ and I never thought the feeling would remain the same, every time I felt it.  I’m always thinking of him over myself and I know he is always thinking of me over himself which ends up balancing out and is quite funny how it works.  If I’m eating and he is not, for example, I will stop eating to offer my plate to him and he will either accept or decline depending if he’s hungry.  And while the food was meant for me, I, we, always see “us”.  Nothing in this beautiful relationship is ever one or the other, it is always “our” problem, “our” issue, “our” focus, “our” challenge, “our” accomplishments.  We support each other and comfort one another without any thought and without thinking it a burden.  The love we truly feel for each other helps us benefit from each other and keeps smiles shining, hearts full and joy sparking.
