Love Doesn’t Love You Back

I gently brush your cow lip from your brow

You flinch

I whisper in your ear

I love you

You eye me with suspicion

What is going on?

This is crazy to me

I choose you

You made me smile from ear to ear

My heart flutters

when you speak my name

I say a tender remark to you

You throw this sunshine

into my face

with jagged castigations

What is the matter with you?

You weirdo

How can being treated well

offend and evoke vileness?

Why when I value you

shower you with positive accolades

you cast a look of confusion

and hatred my way

What is the matter with you?

How can you cut me down

when I encircle you with a love’s embrace?

I nurture you

yet you punish me?

What are you doing?

I want the best for you

Why is that so disgusting to you?

Its been so harsh and long

You showed me how precious life is

You flee the intensity

Well, I don’t need your distortions

Love is not sick

I don’t need your avoidance

I need and want tenderness

admiration and loyalty

I should have said this on day one

I bid you farewell

Love does not

Love you back

      Yes..It seems the more we want love in our lives the more elusive it can be.

      Thankyou Shyron for coming over for a visit.

      It is said love is a verb. Love is about doing and showing. Rather than speakiing words of love.

      Peace and Happiness to You Elijah

      That is very INTERESTING and true at times when one loves for love to be returned it doesn't love the lover back.

      I have discovered when we love ourselves without conditions and with everything we have to love with love comes to us from seemingly everywhere.

      There is a funny thing about the words ascribed to Jesus often called "the golden rule" that I'm paraphrasing as "love god with everything you have and your neighbor as yourself." If you have notice it doesn't say how to love yourself unless "loving god" means to love yourself. When I realized that and began to love myself, at times being required to disrespect both my mother and daddy, when people saw how much I loved me no matter what they did to me it turned them into being lovers of me.

      What the above means is show your love by your actions and not by words then you will see love loves you back.
