Love, Romance

 I include myself as part of the minions who do not truly know the volume love holds. To date, no one has ever been able to come up with a definition of it that we can all agree on. Thus it is, in all honesty, an 'enigma' unto itself within human beings' capacity to understand it, and why I see love and 'god' as one and the same.   

     Romance, on the other hand, is something only two people who love each other can create, no? Man created romance? I think so. Romance just a small mundane piece of the whole. Whereas love, (the sort of which I think you are speaking of), is something to that which any good mother would sacrifice all pleasureable luxuries in order to provide for the "loved ones"...even to the point of death, if it meant the greater good of her family, and she felt there were no other choice, right?  

I would agree, if asked, that few people know the gravity of love. They allow romance to destroy its true worth. The commercialism, the dollars, the sheer disrespect for hardship in the face of true love is massacred by our frivolous and selfish lusting for "romance". What do you think?   

     Please don't think I am being "cold" or that I am "unromantic", as I am neither. I am just a person who prefers love over romance, because I have been gifted with seeing there is a huge difference in a world where few value the difference. I really value the difference.

     There are also circumstances I have had to endure in many different love relationships that have called for this understanding. It could very well be an important part of my whole life purpose.

   A good idea for anyone might be to be "in" love...always, in all ways, and romance will surely follow when YOU choose for it to, an not when someone else (or society) chooses to use it on you as a "blindfold". If we all practiced this, the world may just follow.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Haw haw haw Dear nightieliey1200 lovey yas postey.Was truly wondering how long this LOVE will squeeze meaningless verbose and bitter/better extract!!!


Is love a kid eyeing a huge candy floss?

Is love leaping off a 30mt cliff without fear?

Is love nosediving into ocean bottom without diving gear?

Is love helping the crippled life get  across?

Is love smooching and V-Day chocolates?

Is love sexting and cellchatting with love songs?

Is love silently holding hands watching sundown?

Is love washing pooed nappies without a frown?

Is love crying seeing a butcher slicing a lamb to sell?

Is love being tormented by  pieces of meat up for sale?

Is love sitting at an altar gazing into nothing?

Is love feeling the wads of currency in pockets?

Is love ogling at buxom beauties eyes popping off sockets?

Is love a feeling without which man is nothing?   Yah really pozeees tooo tuffee quztuns .Jus when mah waz thinkin of relaxing & drifting in dreams.~Yaz~friend~tryin~tah~keep~afloat

Always a treat to get a wild

Always a treat to get a wild glimpse into the murky waters of Love's many faces, eh, Bishu? Ok, so nothing you think is meaningful, ok ok. Just be with yourself. Maybe love is what you make it.. just like life. One and the same. But til then, there is ;-) 


Thanks for reading. ♥♡♥
