I think this is self explanatory. It refelects my own experience of love.
The Many Faces of Love
1. Puppy Love
Her voice trails at the end of the phone
Angel of perfection
Cannot live without her.
2. Tension of Opposites
He loves her body with haste and fury
They scream in pleasure and pain
Man rages with and without her.
One plus one becomes three
Great joy in small discoveries
Child becomes the glue of their meaning.
4. Bad Habits (The Critic in Us)
Preferences slowly rise to the fore
She has what he does not
The eye sees only what it wants to see.
5. True Love
He looks past the small irritations
She sees him through the eye of her heart
They find something greater than each of them.
6. The Gaps She Weaves
He is complete without her
But together there is something else
One day the gaps will speak more loudly than words.
7. Till Death
They are blind together but together they see
Always there for each other
Death will remind them of the gift of their love.
