love

“love should have passion”
i agree with your words
“a constant burning need”
i shake my head in denial
“but that is what separates
lovers from friends, passion!”
again i disagree, with a shake
“what then? a passionless love?”
i keep shaking slowly, sorrowfully
“one or the other, pick”

“love should be the current
flowing strongly every day.
it moves you through life without
ceasing, persistent.
passion is the rapids.
occasionally it sweeps you along
with a breakneck pace and the danger
of being pulled under. it’s
thrilling, and dangerous, but
destructive. both should be a part of
the journey through life.”
