What is love?


What is love?

I wish I know….

But I know what love is not.

You see,

Love is not

A mad sex starved rapist saying the 3 year old seduced him with her tears and screams.

Love is not

a beautiful banging body wearing expensive designer plasters and bandages ,

after intimate kicks and blows from her soft spoken lovingly loving lover.

Love is not

75 year old Jack coming down the stairs head first,

after an affectionate shove from his gold digging 25 year old bride.

Love is not

people passing paths filled with sick starving souls and all they share is a word of prayer.

Love is not

a feeling you feel when you feel a feeling you have never felt before.

Love is not a word,

or a phrase or even a sentence.

I guess love is an act,

you live it,

you don’t just say it.



King Olulu, not from Zulu (c)
