the nature of love

The love illusion

When a baby, the child

Seeks  nourishment suckling his mother’s tits

In her bosom, he feels bliss

Then neither can be replicated.

He grows up and falls in love, but cannot

Explain why

He might fall in love many times and is

Surprised when it ends.

This because he confuses sexual love

With the real thing.

Finally, he marries, he marries.

His wife is a new mother

But the longing for safety is there

Something is missing

And he will never know why he is unfulfilled.

Take mistresses

None of them will assuage or recreate

The utter bliss he once felt.

So he grows old and will never know

What true love is?
