It seems the world thinks love and lust
That true love consists of
a kiss and another and another,
a dark room and a romantic night.
Maybe a one night stand or
maybe sweet nothings from that boy of 2 years
or maybe a night with that girl who you think you love.
But I think they’re wrong.
True love and lust do not seem to get along.
Love is sacrifice, it hurts like hell sometimes. But the beauty should outweigh that.
It means building forts made of blankets
in a dark basement with Christmas lights
and giggling for hours while playing video games;
Rather than a dark basement where
Seeing stars and kissing that leads to more
and more and more
defines your every weekend.
So if you find yourself kissing more than talking,
regretting more than smiling,
Wondering why you did that certain thing instead of tickling your partner until they cry with tears of joy,
Is it time to make a change from lust to love?"
