Let Love Be Love (Poem)

Updated on April 16, 2018

I'm fighting against the snare of plastering a fairytale smile,

I'm running away from the urge to make my life appear organized,
I beat myself up everytime I mimic perfection while my humanness I hide,

And the funny thing is, it's not what I want to do,
Having written on the subject of love, I am baffled at how I am when love is to be realized,
I know the truths, the principles, and the lies,
Yet I turn wide-eyed when it comes to me in real life,

This then is my remuneration for the cost of indiscretion,
A higher explanation that I had to learn through another wave of undulation;

Love is atrracted to honesty,
it feasts on the sight of bare reality,
it shudders not from unfiltered photographs,
it only works on the plane of sincerity, and never on social media apps,
it is a grace-defined, grace-sustained miracle,
it's never a product of illusion that you can buy and sell,
it's entry way is through the door of commitment,
thirsting for meaning found in eloquent eyes,
for love can never be appealed to by a meretricious disguise,

So never act to be loved,
never speak to be loved,
never put half of your heart on display,
wishing one will look your way;
it is a disaster, this I'm telling you,
Love can never be cheated,
it seeks out what is true,

So do not worry with the differences that may collide,
don't go ahead with pride as your guide,
let love call you, let it bring you together with what's inside,
surely, differences shall be reconciled,
weakness shall bow its face,
choosing still to love as it finds its source in grace,
and the nakedness of reality shall be your sweetest melody;
for love is love,
just be still and allow it to be.-apG

(Soli Deo Gloria)
