THE KIND OF LOVE I WANT/NEED

HONESTY

Soap Opera love,
romance novel love,
back seat love, and
the con man love;
these and other so-called
"I love you" expressions
of love are designed
for selfish interests.
The courts and jails
are filled with abusers
who did so using the
worn-out excuse of
"But I love her/him."
You can teach a parrot
to say "I love you."
Most of us have been
"loved" by the voice of a parrot.
I desire a love that "walks
and not talks". I need and want
a love that is kind, patient,
understanding, truthful, and
forgiving when I mess up.
I want a love that is sincere
and doesn't try to blow smoke.
I want a love that realizes
we are all imperfect beings
willing to accept each other's
flaws and all. I want a love
that compromises on
none-life-threatening issues.
YES,
I know there are no perfect
persons, but as two imperfect
persons we can commit to
being committed to love
that walks and not just talks.
TAKE,
my hand and let's start walking.
