What is love? you ask me.

Is it something you create or something that simply creates you?

Is it red, fluid air that attaches itself to you as soon as you pass it?

Perhaps it's a disadvantage or maybe a strength.

I heard it was friendship and commitment.

Many say it happens unexpectedly.

But if love happens unexpectedly, then how do you figure out

that it's love?

How do you know that you're in love if you don't know what it means?

Most say that they just know...How do they know?...

What if we were all influenced?

Dragged into pit holes covered in lust.

Can you find love in greed?

Cover it with content and chastity?

Do we confuse love with sensuality?

Mask our selves with fake promises of forever that are broken to soon?

Why do we covet others if it is a sin to want someone lustfully?

What qualities do lust have that are better than love?

Love gives us hope and the awakening of a new day while lust gives us pleasure and excitement.

If lust is sexual passion,

then what is Love?

Is it emotional passion?
