Love infidel

Love
no matter how,
I think it, i feel it, give it,
I will always be in violation
of someone's expectations.

Am I so wrong to offer unconditnal love?
To hope one day I will be worthy of the same?
I look at love as everything it could possibly be,
Perhaps I have not looked enough at what it can't?

To you I am an infidel of love
But I am love's champion
a warrior of love fierce and brave
Faithful to all that is of heart and soul

The soul moves through barriers
The further it strays the closer it stays
The heart beats strangely
The more it pours out the more it fills
Though never exhausted never not wanting
What good is there in a heart or soul
capable of so much beyond any limits;
Held captive by another's expectations?

Will you ever loose all expectations of love?
Must I give boundaries to mine?
You expect much of me
Will you never truly feel my gift?
will I never get it right?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Love knows no boundaries... Not true, never will be as long as we are too cowardly to let love live in all it's forms and all it's glory, there is no taming love, there is no claiming it, nor putting a stake in, there is only the gift of receiving and giving. Anything else is a selfish expectation.

II used to think I could love

II used to think I could love unconditionally, thought it was ideal and pure, but I don't believe now that it is possible. It is a nirvana beyond reach, just barely visble as the clouds part and the peak is briefly revealed, only to slip away shrouded once more. I believe that sooner or later, the pure feelings of unconditional love are corrupted by the needs of the flesh. Moreover, to continue to love unconditionally after your lover has lost the feeling is a recipe for misery. I've tried it, and it hurts a little too long. It's a futile expectation.

 

Thanks for the thought-provoking piece.

Love

without condition or reservation
Love is free, and should be given and shared as such.

I applaud your epic rendition of what love should be.

Agreed. I think people put a

Agreed. I think people put a limit of what they want love to be instead of what it should be and what it's capable of. Our own bitterness and arrogance manipulates all expectations of love.

Great write! And you will find someone who will let their love blossom and expand to both your hearts content :). Thanks for sharing!
