Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
-- Dr. Seuss
Love isn't what I would dare to define
no words could do justice to that feeling
others have called it profound, and divine
almost not to be uttered before first kneeling.
It is so much easier to say what love is not
like when I am horny, or have a piece of pie
as there are other things that I "love" a lot
but they've never made me look up at sky.
Can't "fall" in love, it always caught me on my feet
love or not, just couldn't afford to lose my mind
while surrendering enough to find it so sweet
not enough though to go completely blind.
There's something like wise emotions
that are void of any crazy self-deceiving
heart fragmented between good devotions
each with its own good taste in rational living.
We cannot love without peace of mind
a turmoil in heart polluting every fine feeling
so capacity for loving is many things combined
it can't be just a left over after all coping and dealing.
Love is like a flower to be nurtured with care
never a possession that we take for granted
it's not about a give-and-take, but to share
if not meant to bloom, better not be planted.
