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
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.
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?
