Love Is More

Love is more
Than aesthetics
Beauty is only skin deep
It may be what you first notice
Or what first gets you noticed
But it’s not enough
Love is more than the flashy cover on a book

Love is
What can’t be seen at first glance
It’s what’s beneath the surface
It’s the detail on every page of the book
That has to be studied
It’s what remains when beauty fades
It is the constant

Love is more
Than physical attraction
Or physical expression of that attraction
Even when it’s fantastic
It’s not enough

Love is
What you do in between the sex
Not just kisses that delight
It’s in the conversation
And the understanding
It’s holding hands and not caring who sees
Its walks in the country
It’s dancing cheek to cheek to cheesy love-songs
It’s caring and sharing
Love is being diminished by its loss

Still Waters

A poem which contrasts the constants in relationships - love and commitment - with the temporal pleasures of beauty and physical attraction.
