The Madness Called Love

You loose your senses

And fall in love.

It all goes well for a while,


When the test of love comes,

The object of your love and affection

Gets jittery and realizes

That the sacrificial part of love

Is hard work and unpleasant

To the emotions.



The object of that love

decides to pull away

And find the next rush

To His adrenaline – a pleasant shock to His system

Based on mere feelings without deep root.


So what is the meaning of love

Or falling in love?


Falling in love is wonderful

As long as the love grows

Deep enough to be sacrificial

And resolve conflicts.


If there is no giving, kindness

And the ability to sacrifice and work

Hard at making love work,

Then, all I can see is great folly

And madness.

    Great reminder of what true Love is – it’s not just an emotion, it should be deeper. Thank you for sharing this! 😊

    Yes, you are so right here. “Falling in Love,” is a fantasy, I think. Growing in love is better, which sometimes happens after falling in love, but it is pretty rare. It seems when we fall it is for a physical attraction and a few things about a person’s personality. It would be good for people to date for a long time and not think they are in love right away, it is just a physical attraction.

      Thank you so much for the insightful comment. You explained it so well, “growing in love is better and it sometimes happens after falling in love, but it is pretty rare ” I really love the deep insight. Grace and blessings to you always.β€οΈπŸ˜ŠπŸ™
