Faces of Love

Love has many faces

Faces of Love

Faces of Love      Love has many faces

Love wears a smile

Love wears a frown


Love is sweet 

It fills you with hope 


Love is bitter

It is a dream crusher


Love wraps you with warmth

Its space is cozy


Love is laden with violence

You cannot escape its masterful uppercut


Love is trust

You live knowing it’s got your back


Love is betrayal

It walks away when you least expect it, selling your treasures for a fee


Love is peaceful

It encourages resolution and sharing


Love is rancour

The spite and venom keep you on your toes


Love is the fuzzy feeling

The butterfly in your stomach


Love is the sharp pain

That reaps your heart apart


Love is a hug

The many types of hugs you want


Love is refrain from an embrace

Turning away from things that hurt you


Love is giving

Beautiful roses, chocolates, ponies, and the likes


Love is taking

Privileges and benefits that send you crashing


Love is welcome

Love is goodbye




About the poem

There are many faces of love. Sometimes it comes to us as soft, succulent, and fragrant. At other times love shows up as hard, strong, and stinky. To live wholly and fully, we should manage the different sides of love and learn that we need both sides for balance and growth. Love is always around us. Love and be loved.
