Love is an act, not a feeling

The act gets harder
It’d take a heart that has felt it before
To feel it, it requires a soul that’s willing
To be willing doesn’t entirely mean
‘Applied strength”

I believe, to love someone
Is to bend yourself
Your desires
Your interests and fears
And wrap them all
Around that one person.

To take their desires
And manufacture your own
To take their tears
Stir them with yours
To make the most delicious of teas
To take their fear away
Replace it with a fierce security

To love, is to lose yourself
So you can find yourself
If someone loses their self
To finding you so they can find themselves
That’s true wealth
That’s why it is not just
A feeling but an act
But the act is hard most times

Hard to do
Or be appreciated
