Live in Love. {Poem}

Girl, flowers

I want you to know what love is—

For it is not a feeling you have felt,
nor one that you can learn.

No darling, it is something far more palpable

Love is not something you fall into,
not anything to find or trade for,
but something you come from.

It exists in the marrow of your
soul, permeating your heart
and encompassing your entire being.

It is limitless, with a disregard
for objects and highest reverence
for truth.

It hardly whispers at all,
and is not provoked by lust.

Love is not a stimulant,
not a high, not a vortex,
but a force—a vibration
of the most potent quality.

It is not something to complicate or master,
to control or understand,
but rather—when we are purified,
it is love that we radiate.

Love is a light.

Love is life.

I want you to know love,
so that you might know
what it is like
to truly live.
